I have been working with SYSPREP to prep a 2000 disk and I cannot get it to quit prompting for the product id.

I have put the product id like so:


Is the key that I am putting in there? (I am not using X's)

Is there any other way to do this (Ex-reg fix...etc...pre sysprep)

Any help would be appreciated!

It needs to be:


not ProductKey

Run the setupmgr.exe from the win2k cd and then edit the sysprep.inf. Put the product key as shown above. Run the sysprep.bat and image it.

Might want to download sysprep 1.1 btw -
The Windows 2000 System Preparation Tool (Sysprep) Version 1.1 enables administrators to prepare Windows 2000 System Images as part of an automated deployment. Sysprep 1.1 is an update to Sysprep 1.0 and adds the ability to reduce the number of images required in a deployment by supporting multiple mass storage controllers.
