Windows 10: Clean install, wrong user name

    Hi there

    I got "Other User" during the install (clean install from iso) - but it reverted to my own (local) user on the first PROPER boot after installation.

    I was never prompted for a Ms account either -- didn't want to use one apart from One Drive when you can login to one drive separately - doesn't effect your Windows login.

    This is one is a head scratcher. When the PC is booting up (on 10041 of course), it refers to me, the only user on this PC, as "Other User".
    I get that connecting to my 8.1 machine through RDP. The account on 8.1 is a local account set to auto-logon through netplwiz and I think that it is this that causes this "Other User" logon picture when you connect through RDP although why I don't know.
