Well... There's a contradiction in your setup, which you already stated yourself:

AutoLogon = Yes
AdminPassword =

AutoLogon logs on the admin user, but you should have a password, else it won't log on. Also, it's strongly recommended to set an admin password. Use 'admin' as password if you have to. But set SOMETHING!

AdminPassword =

was not in there. I accidentally posted teh winnt.sif i was playing with when trying to find the problem. I could try removing AutoLogon = Yes and adding AdminPassword = XXxxXX


I have tried it with AdminPassword = XXXX, AutoLogon = Yes, and with neither. Every time I get same results. Any more ideas?
