Did you do the registry hack? They say to do it if you do not get the 
"Welcome to the domain" box, but I got that box and then couldn't log in 
with a user. I applied the hack and re-booted. Logged in without a problem.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE - SYSTEM - CurrentControlSet - Services - Netlogon - 
Parameters - requiresignorseal /change from 1 to 0
