    Angry Am I missing something? (unattended install)

    I created a 64bit image to run an unattended installation and had no problems deploying to all IT suites for the students.
    Following this I imaged a test machine to create a teacher image (just install sims and our instant messenger on top of the students image) and ran sysprep again but when I deploy this image the computer name appears to change but on a gpresult it thinks it's a different name.
    This means that no machine policies get applied only user ones
    At first I thought it could be the unattended file but i used the same one as the student image just to check.

    So now I'm thinking it must be something to do with the prestaging AD bit and it appears it's not that either so how do I stop it happening as the machine is given a new SID so regenerating that won't help

    Driving me crazy this one and now I'm getting the same with the 32bit images built from scratch for some of the older laptop's that only have x86 processors.

    We had a similar problem with Windows 7. We had to turn off UAC.

    It seems that you're right. Turned off UAC and reimaged. Domain join completed without a problem. Would you know if there is a group policy to turn UAC back on again?
