Windows 8.1 Administrator account disabled after running sysprep and capture in MDT 2013 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've created my Windows 8.1 image through VMware workstation and run a sysprep and capture task sequence through MDT 2013. I was successful in capturing and deploying the image the first time I did this. I have since gone back into VMware workstation to update my image. After I have it all updated I run sysprep and capture again and it runs but my administrator account gets disabled at the end. So when I go to deploy my image through MDT 2013 I can deploy it but the administrator account is always disabled. Any suggestions?

  • There should also be a RunSynchronousCommand entry: Check your unattend.xml file

                    <RunSynchronousCommand wcm:action="add">
                        <Path>cmd /c net user Administrator /active:yes</Path>
