Prevent Windows from Trying to Recover after a Failed Boot

By default, Windows will try to recover the system if it fails to boot. This isn’t always what you want. this SuperUser answer shows how to change it:

bcdedit /set {default} bootstatuspolicy ignoreallfailures

to set it back:

bcdedit /set {default} bootstatuspolicy displayallfailures

You need to be running the command prompt as administrator and have UAC disabled to perform these actions.

Allow Passwordless Remote Logins

By default, Windows will not allow you to log in remotely without a password. This is pretty easy to change. From this StackExchange link

  • run gpedit.msc
  • Navigate to Computer Configuration\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Local Policies\Security Options
  • Disable Accounts: Limit local account use of blank passwords to console logon only

That’s it.
