How to get MY user to autologon?

Recommended Posts

usually, the admin account is first autologging, then installing apps, reg tweaks etc..

but those setting are not apllied to MY created admin user, (named for example Adiel :unsure:)

but only for the main administrator account.

how to get it apllied for all users, or make my account autologin first?

thanks

The best place to start is here:

http://unattended.msfn.org/intermediate/users.htm

You will have to change the Autologn from Yes to No in winnt.sif, this is for the default Admin account. Disabling this, means the info in the above link for NET USER will create your own account, and autologon to that instead.

GuiUnattended]

AutoLogon = No

AutoLogonCount = 1

There are also a few other things you may want to look at, as I have customised my Unattended disk to work in the following way, as I to did not want to apply regtweaks etc to default admin account.

I am assuming you are talking Unattended, as this is the approriate sub-forum?

What I have managed to do is:

Install XP

First Boot into my own Admin account

Install hotfixes, drivers...

Reboot

Log back in to my own Admin account

Install apps/tweaks etc...

Reboot back to login screen

Will be happy to help if you need it....

Good luck!

I assume your complaint is about registry tweaks not being applied to your user account.

The easiest solution is to apply the tweaks to

HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT

as opposed to

HKEY_CURRENT_USER

HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT

Who would this apply to??

It would apply to ALL USERS, every account that gets created now and in the future.

This is to answer Adiel's original question.

I prefer to apply tweaks at Cmdlines.txt before any accounts are created. Any HKEY_CURRENT_USER tweaks are automatically redirected to the default user. Future accounts inherit the tweaks. This is by far the easiest method.

Installing apps can be done to the correct account as drscouse has mentioned or for all users if installed directly from a script executing the installations from Cmdlines.txt
