Administrator password rejected after installing Windows Server using HP Intelligent Provisioning

February 25, 2015

If you find that the Administrator password that you set during the HP Intelligent Provisioning interview is rejected at your first attempt to logon, you’ve been bitten by a bug. HP support tells me that you have to enter no password during the HP Intelligent Provisioning interview, otherwise you’ll be locked out. When you set no password during the HP Intelligent Provisioning interview, Windows will prompt you to create one at first logon.
