I am using Microsoft Deployment toolkit, and I have successfully deployed my reference image to an HP 8000 Elite Desktop and HP Elitebook 2540p notebook.
However, I have an interesting yet serious problem with the Elitebook 8440W notebook (that does not happen on the 8000 or 2540p).
Operating system is Windows 7x64 Professional.
The registry has default values with caching.
The computer is also a member of the domain.
The computer is put into hibernation. When coming out of hibernation (there is no network connection) the password is not accepted (using the correct password to the account that is listed, the same user who was logged on when computer hibernated).
The only way for the user to get into the computer is to reboot (cold reboot) and then logon is possible (with same user name and password) even if the computer is disconnected from network.
Is this hardware or software related issue?
