    Computers auto named during deployment

    I've built an image for HP minis 5101 and captured it on our WDS. It was deployed on around 100 machines. During deployment there was a small % that had an issue as described below.

    After PXE boot and choosing image the install would begin.
    The windows % spalsh screen would readch 100%
    The machine would reboot but load a failed system shutdown prompt and asked you to select safe mode, safe mode w/network, last known good or normal.
    After selecting normal boot it would get to the first setup page (region time/currency keyboard layout)
    After clicking through this one you should be able to name the PC and create a user name but it reads "Choose a user name for your account. Your computer's name is managed by your organization's system administrator."

    I'm guessing this has been setup by mac address, UUID or asset tag on the WDS. How can I clear this out or locate these settings to edit on the WDS? Or is there another possibility?

    Thank you in advance for your help on this.

    If I ever need to change the name of a machine I have to delete it from AD and run the following command on my WDS server WDSUTIL /delete-AutoAddDevices /devicetype:ApprovedDevices

    Not sure if they helps.
