Value specifies the AdministratorPassword. If the computer is connected to a domain, this value must meet domain password complexity requirements.

To configure a blank administrator password, write an empty string in Windows System Image Manager (Windows SIM) by right-clicking on the Value setting, and choose Write Empty String. The built-in administrator account will be enabled with a blank password.
