I had a similar issue where I had to change the autologon count. I created a mid level task to copy a new unattend.xml file over.

So here is what I did, I took the unattend.xml file along with C:\Windows\System32\xcopy.exe file and put them into a .zip. I loaded the .zip into an application K2000 Boot Environment (Windows) postinstallation task with the command:

xcopy.exe unattend.xml c:\windows\panther /q /y
You might need to use the following (%~dp0 before file name) because I had to do something similar and it no longer worked the same:
xcopy.exe %~dp0unattend.xml c:\windows\panther /q /y

You could also maybe just use a post install task to change the password later in the deployment process.
