setup login after sysprep runs

Recommended Posts

Good day all;

Have a question for everyone. Looking for a little help to save me a few moments of time while imaging around 800 desktops and laptops. I work for a community college. Before the Fall Semester begins we image all the computers on campus to get them ready for classes. We are using Windows XP SP2 and using sysprep to help us get them setup. I have setup the sysprep to stop where we name our computers and from that point on it finishes the job for us. Big time saver. To help save me a few more minutes I was wondering if there is a way where, as the very last step, sysprep could have the computer login the student as the user, with the student password and to the correct domain? Basically the login name is student, then the password and then the domain instead of the computer name. I have a feeling there is a way, but I don't know where to look and need the help of those who know much more then me.

Any help is appreciated. Thank-you for your time :thumbup

Well you can make a reg file and make sysprep set it into


"Autologin"="regedit /s c:\windows\winlogon.reg"

Your winlogon.reg would look like this then:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon]

i don't know if this is what you were looking for

but it works
