Windows OpenStack image with SQL Server 2014 Standard pre-installed


I've had success building my own OpenStack images for Windows using cloudbase-init and some automation. The next step is to build an image that has SQL Server pre-installed. Given that this is supposed to be a generic installation, I'd like to install SQL Server with all the features enabled and with default settings.

My questions are as follows. For some parts of SQL Server, the Analytics component for instance, require that a new user be created during installation. What happens to that user once I install cloudbase-init and prep the installation to become an image? Or is there perhaps a better way of creating an image with SQL Server pre-installed that just running through the normal image creation process, and simply installing SQL Server before installing cloudbase-init and prepping the image?
