MDT 2010 - Create a local user during deployment to the pc and variables in customsettings.ini

Hey guys,

Been working with deploying Windows 7 Pro via MDT 2010 using WDS and have got everything working fine. However, I am having a hard time figuring out how to have MDT create a new user account on the local machine while leaving the administrator disabled. Currently, it unlocks the admin account with the password I have provided in the customsetting.ini. I'd like instead for it to create a local administrator account, let's say Bob, with a password I provide and leave the default Administrator disabled as it is by default.

Also, is there any granularity to the formatting / partitioning via MDT? I'd like for it to install to a hard drive that has existing partitions while leaving the other partitions alone. Mainly using this to roll back our 64bit hp boxes back to 32bit and I'd like to leave their built-in recovery partition.

One more thing, I've been scouring the help manual and the internet trying to find a complete list of variables / commands / settings for use in the customsettings.ini file, so far I only see the same basic subset that gets passed around for the basic config. Anyone have a good resource for the full list?

Thank you!
