MDT Version: 2012 Update 1 beta
Server: Server 2008 R2
OS being deployed: Windows 7 Professional x86
We have a refresh TS. It works fine in DHCP enviroment, but if the machine has static ip, deployment stops at second reboot in login screen.In the screen appears "Administrator" account, but we do use group policy to rename the Administrator account (admin_seven)
if you login manually using another account, deployment can continue, apps installing and finish without errors.
- Checked unattend.xml files to ensure admin credentials are present
- Checked smts.log, but there are not errors

During deployment SCCM/MDT reboots with the original credentials "Named Administrator Account " + "Configured Administrator Password" when this changes during the deployment of the operating system and the machine reboots after the account name has been changed, it cannot continue because the system cannot log on.
So either you move the machine to a temporarily staging organizational unit in active directory where no GPO's are applied, you disable the GPO for this machine's OU or you add a manuel "Run command line" to the task sequence which renames the administrator account as the last step into the task sequence before the machine is ready for use.
This should be the last or one of the last actions before your machine does a final reboot. The command in the screenshot apply's for Windows 7
Keep us posted, and if helpful please rate! Kind regards
