Change win7 productkey - Post Installation Task
I have recently started work as a Junior Systems Administrator for a rather large company 300+ employees
Unfortunately, there is nobody currently working here who knows how to use KACE, and my knowledge is mediocre at best.
After days trying to get Windows to deploy successfully via a Scripted Install, I have managed to have a small triumph however I want to make the process as automated as possible, and right now I only have windows installing and microsoft office installing.
Is it possible to change the windows 7 product key, as a post install task? As our scripted image fails to deploy with a Product Key I have had to resort to manually changing our product key for every system deployed.

If you are using Volume License media, then you can do this as a Post Install Task:
Type: Batch Runtime: Windows Command: cscript C:\Windows\System32\slmgr.vbs /IPK XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX
cscript C:\Windows\System32\slmgr.vbs /ato
Just make sure to fill in your key in for the XXX and that should do it.
