I followed the instructions on the website to bootstrap a Windows image but I cannot figure out how to configure the image to simply ask for the user to set the password and not have a default password.

I added firstlogonbehaviour=always to my cloudbase-init.conf and cloudbase-init-unattended.conf but it doesn't seem to work. I am always prompted to enter the old password and then 2 new passwords.

Here are my configs and logs

You have to do sysprep OOBE with generalize also with shutdown. and it will reset the password before shutdown the windows.

Sorry, I'm not quite sure what you mean by that. Can you elaborate?
