I just recently began using a K2000 box for imaging and when deploying my Windows 7 via the scripted install, everything seems to work as it is supposed to except it prompts me to create a user (I have it create the administrator account and set a password on it). Anyone know what I need to do to supress this prompt? After I enter a username the rest of the install goes as intended.

This shouldn't be popping up unless no local users were defined in the unattend file; this is generally done with the local Admin and automatically logging on a certain number of times to complete the post install tasks.
Are you using OEM medica, Volume licensed media, retail, or something else? Have you verified that the unattend file has your administrator in it?

I am using volume license Win7 pro, configured throught the wizard in KACE.

The problem is that KACE's wizard does not prompt you to add a user account during the wizard process.

So here is what I did to work around it:
1. Open my scripted install
2. Expand/unhid the xml file
3. Added the following to the user accounts section (names changed to protect my network)
<LocalAccount wcm:action="add">
<Description>Local Administrator</Description>
<DisplayName>Some Username</DisplayName>

saved it and we were good to go afterward.
