This doesn't work. You can't "force accept" of an EAP session. The 
protocol is challenge/response and must complete correctly at both ends.

Your approach won't work.

Instead, you must configure pre-login 802.1x authentication correct on 
the Windows side, either using machine credentials or user creds.
