    I've been reading up on the setupcomplete.cmd documentation in Microsoft's web site, and I was told by the documentation that setupcomplete.cmd has "local system privileges."

    Are local system local privileges equivalent to administrator level in terms of access?

    While experimenting with setupcomplete.cmd, I have one question: if I tried entered a command for bcdedit to ignore shutdown failures in setupcomlete.cmd, which supposedly has local system privileges, can I succeed?

    If so, how can I know it's done?

    Here's the backstory:

    I entered the bcdedit command to ignore shutdown failures in setupcomplete.cmd.

    While opening the command line in a complete Windows 7, how do I know that bcdedit.exe is ignoring shutdown failures as I coded it?

    As I said you can check whether bcdedit.exe was successful in applying the BCD setting.
    Other than that you'll have to trust the OS loader to honor that setting when it decides whether or not to trigger a boot into recovery.

    Code:
    bcdedit /enum /v
    I believe that if recoveryenabled ... no than, you had done that!

    * I never used that, and I don't know for sure. In my system recoveryenabled ... yes, so...


    cheers
