Windows 10 workstation

This should never have taken so long as to become a project, but there you go.

  • Installation was attempted on NIB Dell OptiPlex 390 small form factor PC, circa May 2012, NOT certified for Windows 10
  • ETS ‘LiteTouch’ express install did its thing, but did not include USB drivers. Windows 10 not very useful without mouse nor keyboard
  • BSAD LiteTouch provided correct drivers, but just one user account, a special Microsoft provided ‘Administrator’ account. But it was ‘locked,’ so despite having correct password, could not login.
  • Addition fiddling unlocked account by disabling it. Same effect.
  • Finally delved into Windows Registry, the holiest of holies spectral energy wells.¬†http://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/2969-administrator-account-enable-disable-windows-10-a.html
  • Success!
