    I'm going to install a fresh copy of Windows 7 on a desktop PC. Now it's going to be added to a domain, and not use local workgroup. Therefore I don't want to mess around with setting up an account, and deleting it after joining the domain. Is there any way to skip setting up an account, and just use the local administrator account - or even join it onto the domain directly?

    What account are you going to use on the "domain" network?

    As far as I know, you cannot skip the step that generates a local admin account.

    Also, the account that is used on a Domain network is controlled by the Domain server, not the local machine.

    I then the machine should be built by the IT department of the domain, then it would be set up right.
