I have an MSI which is configured for machine level installation because it is a device driver.

I can deploy it via Active Directory and Group Policy just fine. However on a newly booted machine a user can login before the installation has a chance to complete and I get an warning in the event log saying it couldn't complete and will be tried at next reboot.

How can I make the login screen wait for the installation to be completed?
