    Name PC during installation needed


    As Win 10 automatically names your PC to some random number, all net related services like one drive, your MS account, Steam and Chrome all see your PC as that name. So then if you want to change your PC, you then have to go around to all the net services and remove the 'old' PC and let it discover or add your 'new' PC.

    You can specify it with an answer file or you have to create a local account then rename the pc then add your other accounts.

    My point was that it should be able to be done during installation so as to save the user from all the needless busy work afterwards.
