I am preparing a Win8 image to use as base for automatic deployments in Hyper-V at the moment.
It seems that whenever a sysprepped image starts, it is running through the whole setup routine - which is bad, as it means setting up a setup user etc.
Can anyone answer or point me to documentation how to avoid this? What I would like is the setup image to: * Have a predefined active administrative account * THAT IS IT ;)
The admin account can then be used to join it to a domain (we have some, and some machines outside) as well as give some domain user local rights. I am totally OK with this account being THE administrator account, as well as it being a setup account, but it has to be pre-configured and I would love to avoid the stupid movie every time I set up a vm ;)
Was easier with windows 7 ;)
