I have captured  windows 7 image using MDT 2013. The WIM file created successfully but now when i deploy to the other computer
1. Install operating system, Applying the image process will get complete
2. DISM process will get complete and restart the computer
after restarting i will get log in screen and does not continue,
If I enter local administrator user ID,  It pop ups that the "account is disabled"

Any solution to resolve this issue really appreciated

that is normal for the operating system. one of the tasks in the deployment is to enable the administrator  account.
open up your install o/s task sequence, in the properties, click o/s info, open the unattend.xml (it may have to create the catalog (.clg) files, so give it time).

in section 7 oobe it should have autologon enabled, count 999, username Administrator

once you create another user the administrator account will be disabled unless you run
net user administrator active:yes
you can optionally add a password
net user administrator P@ssw0rd

Auto log on is enabled in WIM, additionally i have captured 3 more images in the same task sequence
a. Windows 8.1 with SQL express - works fine
b. Windows 8.1 without SQL Express - Works fine
c. Windows 7 without SQL Express - Works fine
d. Windows 7 with SQL Epress - Giving the trouble, I am not able to locate any log file to check the error codes,  I suspect, there was some issue might have happened in the sysprep step before creating the WIM, but no errors has found in the reference computer while building the WIM. I started re-building the WIM now

I suspect that the issue could be some where while capturing the wim, hence re-captured the wim found working fine. re-capturing is not a easy, it is time consuming task
