sysprep use different admin account

Sysprep uses the root admin account, "Administrator".  Is there an entry I can place inside of the sysprep.inf file that allows me to use a renamed administrator account?  Or how could I do this.  "Administrator" doesn't exist anymore on my PC so when I reboot with sysprep it can't autologin.

Doesn't exactly answer your question, but if you are on a domain.  Leave the administrator account named as administrator in your image and configure the GPO setting of rename the administrator account in your default domain policy (or whatever gpo you choose).

This way Sysprep will work at intended and once you join the domain, your admin account gets renamed.

Nope sorry Richard :(  Not on a domain....

Just need to figure out a way to change sysprep trying to log into "Administrator" on startup when it should be logging into a different admin account name...
