Task Sequence boots into login prompt for Other User not Administrator RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've got a stubborn Task Sequence that after laying down the OS (Windows 10), boots back into a login prompt for Other User. None of my other Win 10 images do this. I'm beginning to think it's the hardware, an HP EliteBook 840 G3.

    If I login as Administrator, the Task Sequence runs and finishes successfully. I've looked at BDD.log and nothing stands out to me. Has anyone seen something like this before?

  • This issue has a workaround, hopefully the new MDT update will fix it. Any way the fix is reapplying the auto login information.

    Make a PowerShell script and add the task to the beginning of the State Restore phase.

    $RegPath = "HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon"
    $AdminPass = 'S3creTPa$$w0rD'
    Set-ItemProperty $RegPath "AutoAdminLogon" -Value "1" -type String
    Set-ItemProperty $RegPath "AutoLogonCount" -Value "999" -type String
    Set-ItemProperty $RegPath "DefaultPassword" -Value $AdminPass -type String
    Set-ItemProperty $RegPath "DefaultUsername" -Value "Administrator" -type String
    Set-ItemProperty $RegPath "DefaultDomainName" -Value "." -type String
