Click start, Administrative Tools, and then open 'Local Security Policy'. On the left hand side, navigate to Security Settings > Local Policies > Security Options. In the middle pane, find 'Interactive logon: Do not display last username' and double click it. In the popup, change the setting to 'Enabled'.

Let me know how that goes.

Worked like a charm. Thanks.

The only other problem I am having is getting Intel Rapid Storage Tech "CONSOLE" installed. I have downloaded files from Supermicro, Tried to use the ones on the Supermicro Install disk and tried to download from Intel.

Do you know of a group policy or securty setting that is preventing this?

I sure would appreciate the help.

I am glad to hear that it works for you. When you try to install the console, do you receive any error message?

Thanks for your help.

There are no error messages. It just acts like it installs and the drivers seem to be in place when I check the device details. But the console does not install in the programs part of the start menu.

I have the console working on a 2000 Server and a WIndows 7 machine but there seems to be some Server 2008 issue keeping this from installing. I have installed other programs without any problems. It acts like the console is not on the same disk as the drivers and I cannot find a console only download from Intel or Supermicro.

Is it in your Program Files folder? (C:\Program Files) Also, If you are running a x64 OS, also check in the 'Program Files (x86)' folder.
