MDT 2012 - Image failing during system restore - C:\LTIBootstrap still there. Autologin not happening. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I'm hoping someone can assist.  I have an image that was working but the builtin admin account was disabled.  I went into the image and enabled the account and set a password.  I ran sysprep and capture.  Now, when i try to deploy either image, it installs the OS, reboots and then sits at a login (does not go into the admin account to continue).  I login and i notice that LTIBootstrap.vbs is sitting on the root of c along with the Minint folder and other MDT folders.  I have MDT on 2 servers and they both do the same thing.  Unattend.xml in c:\minint has the correct local admin/password

    Customsettings.ini:

    [Settings]
    Priority=Default
    Properties=MyCustomProperties
     
    [Default]
    DeployRoot=\\ourserver\D$\DeploymentShare$

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  • Hi Rick,

    To my understanding, sysprep and to be more specific the "gerenalize" step will make sure all personalized information will be removed before entering the capture mode.

    I'm aware additional created account's will be preserved, but I can't tell you about the built-in administrator account.

    The first thing that comes to mind is that, your Build task sequence uses a Unattend.xml, just the same as your Deploy task sequence does this.

    Assuming that you don't do anything you haven't mentioned with the account in the task sequence, like renaming the admin account or setting a different password during the task sequence. Cross checking both your Unattended.xml would be a good place to start.

    Also, it is known, that Windows allows the machine to be auto logged on, a couple of times. So please check if this isn't also the case. See this link for more info: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/324737

    Lastly if all else fails, you can set the account enabled, and a password by commandline, but this should only be done as a temporarily work around. See these links for more information: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/251394 and http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/3040.enable-disable-the-local-hidden-built-in-administrator-account-in-windows-7.aspx

    Good luck!
