How exactly are you logging on? For example, are you using a standard password, fingerprint scanner or facial recognition method?

This was a standard upgrade of vista ultimate to windows 7 ultimate, on a home based pc. In vista the client only had an administrator account (no specific user account). Once the upgrade finished I tried to log on (no password since the client had never used one) but was unable to due to the message I reported earlier.

The upgrade was done with and Iso file that I have used successfully in the past.

Win 7 login error: "You cannot log on because the logon method ...."

Run gpedit.msc.
2. Expand Computer Configuration\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Local Policies
3. Click on User Rights Assignment
4. Ensure that "Allow log on locally" includes Administrators, Backup
Operators, Domain Users or Users.

I need to know how to do this through the command prompt or create a bootable disk that will do the same since i can't log in to make the changes.
