### cloudbaseinit and Windows 10

I have successfully used the cloudbaseinit image to generate cloud images of Windows Server 2012 and 2016. As in theory it should also work with Windows 7 and 10, I tried the exact same procedure I followed with the Server versions, but it does not work.

I have tried the stable and the beta versions. I have tried setting Admin and Administrator users (Administrator gets disabled after reboot), and after plenty of attempts I always get the same result: A VM which reboots and prompts for the "Admin" password, instead of the "Set new password" thing.

I can log in with the old Admin password, so it seems that the password is not getting overwritten.

Are the stable and beta versions supposed to work on windows 10? Am I the only one getting this error?

Update: Apparently I am not the only one with this problem. But it was asked more than on year ago, and nobody replied: http://ask.cloudbase.it/question/1109/windows-8-10-can-not-create-administrator-account/
