Hi guys

Whenever I deploy a K-Image it installs but it always asks me to Activate Windows at the end of the deployment (re-install the product key)

We use a KMS lincense key, I point it to our KMS server in sysprep creator but yet I get the re-install product key at the end of deployment.

Also, when I enter the product key and activated it, I created a new K-image once again and upload it to the K2000, but when I go to deploy the new image with the activation I still get the same result. (re-install product key at the end of deployment.)

FYI: windows 7 Pro - problem with both K-Image and WIM deployment.

Am I missing something?

  • also add this line to your post install task

    cscript %SystemRoot%\System32\slmgr.vbs -ATO
    • thx heaps

      Which post install task do I add this to?

      • I only have one big one for mine, this one is a little old but you will see what I mean.
        I would place it in a post script task that runs after the machine is in the domain.
