I am trying to get a Windows 10 virtual machine inside Hyper-V to automatically login (without any lock screen or user password input). There are similar questions on SU about doing this in Windows 10, but I believe that the Windows 10 build 10586.545 may require some additional registry changes.
This is a clean Windows 10 build 10586.545 install.
I ran netplwiz as shown in the image below, unchecking the checkbox "Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer".
I also tried changing options in registry.

What I get is that the Windows lock screen still appears and I am prompted for a password. What I expected was that Windows would let me automatically sign in, and that I would get directly to the desktop of windows (not the lock/login screen) when I watch the system boot up in the Virtual Machine Connection window.
I have verified that I entered the password and username correctly in the automatically sign in dialog which appeared.
Update: My VM spontaneously updated to build 14393 (from build 10586.x) and the problem remains. I also tried AutoLogon sysinternals tool, and that doesn't work either.
Update: It wasn't what I expected. Hyper-V Virtual Machine "Enhanced" Connection really actually means it makes an RDP connection to the VM. This interferes with the user observing the real root session since the Hyper-V Virtual Machine Connection works via RDP, if Enhanced is on.
