I have couple of questions related to OSD using MDT 2012.
Is the below scenarios is possible during a OSD in MDT 2012,
- During OSD MDT should capture the machine NETBIOS name and it should use the same NETBIOS name as the Hostname for the newly deployed OS.
- After OS deployment machine should be in Login screen (Ctrl+Alt+Del screen).
Thanks & Regards,

MDT will not capture the hostname - sysprep will reset this and prompt you for a new hostname when you deploy the image. You can use the MDT database to apply hostname settings based on MAC address etc
The MDT deployment sequence completes with the machine logged is as the local administrator displaying a summary of the deployment. Im not sure if its possible to alter this.

To use the old machine name you could do as vmixture said, prepopulate the database with that information.
If you dont want the machine to be logged on as the administrator you could use: FinishAction=REBOOT in your cs.ini

Hi Henrik Dahl,
As per your advice added the " FinishAction=REBOOT " command and tried the OSD, after OSD machine gets restarted and it prompts for login screen.
Thanks a lot for your help.

If you use the setting OSDComputername=%Computername% this will preserve the computername on a Refresh.
