Been going around in circles. Installed Windows 10 and during installation doesnt give opportunity to name the PC to something can recognize on network. I also changed to no password required for startup.  So I go to settings and rename to Lounge-HTPC, click restart and now it says incorrect username or password and gives me 2 users with same name. The new default wont accept any password and have to select the second user and insert password and it logins.  For lounge PC I want to just start to Windows without inputting password.  Checking Control Panel /Users and settings /account there are no other users. It only shows me. How can I set it to login automatically.  Yes the user in netplwiz is set for users not requiring password.  At this rate I may have to go back to Windows 8

There was a major Southern Cross cable outage mid-morning - this may have blocked activation on US servers.
