When initializing a domain in Windows 7 or 10, it is not possible to select a source domain if the User Account Control in Windows 7 or 10 is set to On.  To resolve the initialization problem, temporarily set the User Account Control in Windows 7 or 10 to Off.

  1. Before initializing a domain, in your Windows 7 or 10 Control Panel, click User Accounts.

  2. Click Turn User Account Control on or off.

  3. Clear Use User Account Control (UAC) to help protect your computer.

  4. Restart the computer.

  5. Initialize the domain.

  6. Turn the UAC on if needed.

Instead of turning UAC off, it is also possible to manually update the content of the PATTERN_wat key in your Windows Registry.  In the Registry Editor, the key appears in the path HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ODBC\ODBC.INI.  You need to define the correct source domain parameters in the key strings.
