This is a rather late answer, but since I just happened to stumble again 
over the solution, I thought I'd post it here in case it is still useful 
for anybody.

Yes, that is possible. The solution is basically what is posted on this 


Apparently, Windows 10 since some version is able to "remember" 
login-credentials over a reboot, and will use these internal credentials 
to sign-in to windows even before you enter the password. This 
unfortunately triggers also the "integrated login" to AFS, but since 
there is no password for it to work with, it will fail.

Once this option in Windows is disabled, Windows will not try to do an 
integrated login without password and everything is ok.
