Strange: Default computer name - "PC" wont allow changing


Recommended Posts



I just created a new windows 7 setup iso (integrated drivers, updates and some addons and tweaks + unnatended with username and product key). When I used this iso on both real and virtual machines, when windows logs in for the first time, it prompts me to enter Computer name while in the text box I see a default name windows chose which is "PC". If I try to change it to anything else, I get errors about unsupported charactes.. For any name I try like "PC2"... This is very strange.. I did not setup a computers name on the unattended file.. Any ideas why is this happening?
