Are you talking about the unattend file used for the scripted installation or the sysprep answer file?

Scripted install. So the install actually stops halfway so i can create the local user account before it can continue with the post installations tasks, though i have the local admin enabled and on auto-log in the answer file, the one that Kace walks you through when you create a scripted install.

If you are re-enabling the administrator account and logging in as administrator you already figured out all the hard parts.

Using the Kace wizard create a "dummy" account.

This way the setup will continue without prompting.

Have you autologin set to come in as adminstrator.

Finally configure a post install task to delete the dummy user.
net user dummy /delete
