Cancel logon screen RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    With netplwiz I tried to cancel the logon screen I have in a Win7 embedded (32) image.

    It did not work so I tried "autologon" from "sysinternals".

    "autologn" did the work.

    Then, after running:

    sysprep /oobe /generalize /shutdown /unattend:d:\unattend.xml

    and boot with PE I created a ghost image.

    But after target powerup, the logon setting was gone.

    Should I add this feature to unattend.xml ? How ?

    Can you tell why netplwiz did not work ?

    Regards,

    Z.V

  • Did you create the image? If so you can add autologon in the answer file.

    For the sysprep, you will need to set the autologon in the unattended file.

  • Hi Sean,

    In case I added autologon in answer file, should I also set it in unattended file ?

  • Generalizing an image resets autologon settings.

    You should specify them explicitly in your unattend.xml file which you use together with sysprep even if you had the settings in your initial answer file.

  • Yes, it needs to be in the sysprep unattended file as well.
