I was wondering if someone can tell me how to get the answer file to prompt the user to input the product key for windows 7 during the setup.
I have syspreped my system and I have the image on my kbox 2000.
Each system has its own key, so I would like to have the system promp me to enter the key during the setup. I tried just entering xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx in the answerfile, but I get an error telling me that the product key is invalid

What happens when you completely omit the License Key line in your answer file?

The install went ahead, and did not ask for the product key.
After the system booted to the main screen, I can just rite click on my computer and go to the enter product key field
I seen in another forum where someone said that if you put a variable between the produt key field in your answerfile it may ask you during the windows install phase, which looked like this
Product key %Please Enter Product Key% Product Key
But I have not had a chance to test this. But I dont mind entering the product key after the install for now, untill we purchase our volume key for Windows 7
Thanks for the help!!!!
