I've installed windows 7 via WDS. All drivers and some recommended softwares installed properly. I was deleted all local user accounts and I logged out. Then i was trying log into my domain like\user with password, it responsed : user name or password incorrect. I think it can't connect our domain. What should I do?

1. Logging in to the domain is not dependent on the existence of local user accounts. 2. It's not possible to delete built-in user accounts so the Administrator account should still be available to you, although it's disabled by default, so that may present some challenges to you.. – joeqwerty Sep 21 '11 at 1:52
So is there any way to enable administrator account? When I login with Administrator, it responds like account disabled... – KevinOelen Sep 21 '11 at 1:55

Did it work for you? – joeqwerty Sep 21 '11 at 3:27

You're missing some details with your question.

Did you join it to your domain / try re-joining it? Does the computer show up in ADUC? Are you 100% sure your domain password is correct?
