WINDOWS 2008 SERVER CORE - WAS NOT PROMPTED TO SET LOGON DETAILS

Hi Ive installed Win 2008 32 bit Server Core which took around 10 mins but there was no prompt to add any logon details although I was in another room during install.  Ive selected 'Ctrl-Alt'Del' and added anything but still cannot logon!!

Am I missing something?

After installing the OS on the next reboot you should see the screen ctr + atl + sup.
Press CTRL+ALT+DEL to log in.
Click on Other User.
The default Administrator is blank, so just type Administrator and press Enter.
You will be prompted to change the user's password. You have no choice but to press Ok.
Change the password and press ok.
Windows creates the user profile and prepares for the first logon.
After this you can create more users or whatever you want:
