All these settings are user settings and can be applied to the default user profile before the capture of the base image during the sysprep phase. MDT 2010/2012 is the key here.

Before capturing restart your computer with sysprep.exe to "Audit" mode. Then apply all the settings to the local Administrator account.

You need a unattended.xml file with the copy profile set to true in the specialize section. Copy this file to c:\windows\system32\sysprep and then open a cmd.

Change the directory to c:\windows\system32\sysprep and launch the sysprep.exe with "/oobe /generalize /restart /unattend:unattend.xml" as argument.

After the restart login as administrator again and capture the machine by calling the litetouch.wsf from your MDT script share.
