unattend Windows 10 1809 setup

I use NTlite to made un attended Windows installations, and I’m now making one for the new Windows 10 1809, but for some reason the setup never comes up asking me to create the user.

After the setup, the login screen just comes up to other user. I use tricks I know to boot from the USB drive, and then can enable the administrator account; afterwards I can log into Windows without a problem.

I have the autounattend right in Windows 1803, but for some reason 1809 isn’t going smooth. However, looking over the 1803 autounattend.xml file I do not see a difference.
I’ve included the autounattend.xml for 1809, and a screen shot of the autounattend options I use with NTlite.

This is probably something simple.
