So I've been asked to research Windows 7 images and the best way to create and deploy them. We don't have MDT 2010 up yet, so I'm stuck using a custom install.wim along w/ the unattend.xml file.
How can you stop Windows 7 OOBE welcome screen from making you create a local user account? After Windows 7 finishes its text based setup, I want it to boot into Windows as Admin bypassing the welcome screen (create user/change PC name). This way desktop support can -
1. Change the PC name
2. Join the domain, reboot, and be done
3. End user logs in, process complete
There is no need for them to do a Audit mode w/ reboot. The domain accounts already exist. I don't want local users being created.
In Win XP you could edit the sysprep.inf so that you had -
Which would allow you to log in as admin the first time after sysprep, join the domain, etc. How do you do this w/ Windows 7? I can only get it to log in as admin in systemAudit mode, I want to do it in OOBE.
Hopefully I just missed something. Like I said, I'm new to automating Windows 7 setup.
