shift+F10 opens command prompt

net user Administrator /active:yes
net user Administrator *
 (or just enter the password explicitly instead of "*")

change HKLM\SYSTEM\Setup\Status\ChildCompletion\oobeldr.exe to 0x3

taskkill /im oobeldr.exe /f
*system reboots*

remember to do the stuff that oobe or unattend.xml normally does:

  • time zone
  • product key / activation
  • network location
  • set computer name
