MAK Not activating Windows
12/14/2017 1111 views
Hello, I have tried this many ways and windows activation is my main hang that is causing this whole system not to be useful. My current method was uploading the images directly from MS's volume licensing site to K2000 with media manager. did a scripted deploy and was able to activate that deployment with MAK. Captured that deployment and now any new deployments from the capture won't activate. this process used to work and windows would automatically activate but is now having issues with a new image due to the massive MS update recently. Any advice on how to get this process working correctly again? how do you use MAK with K2000?

Create a post-install task (BAT) like this
cscript C:\windows\system32\slmgr.vbs -ipk AAAA-BBBBB-CCCCC-DDDDD-EEEEE
cscript C:\windows\system32\slmgr.vbs -ato
Replace AAAA-BBBBB-CCCCC-DDDDD-EEEEE with your MAK key.
