    re enable administrators password

    I've looked at this before and have set a new local administrator in the unattend.xml but is it possible to re-enable the default administrator and and set its password in the unattend.xml. if so what settings do I need to turn on?

    Try this in the RunSynchronousCommand properties. This should enable the local admin again after first login.

    Code:
    net user administrator /active:yes
    In my image though I just let it disable the stock local admin account and have it create another one that is a member of the local admin group.

    Thanks it's give it a try. My current set up is to create a new admin and add to local admins. Microsoft solutions it you have to have autologin set for it to work which is useless for most people. because if I understand correctly would let the admin account just login at boot up. I would thought it would be easy for Microsoft just to add a setting which says enable in the same area where you can see the administrator password.
