Well, if the login box popping up is asking for a username and password, then you would want to enter the username and pass for the administrator of the machine you want to get into. If that is the case, then just create a user on the machine you are copying from that is the exact username and password as the machine you are trying to copy to and log in with that user, that should stop the logon process.

If it's giving username as Guest, and only asking for PW, then I have not yet figured that one out. That shouldn't be happening, but it is.
