    Windows 7 License key & Activation


      Hi all,


      I have just successfully created my first Windows 7 machine using LDMS 9 and many helpful articles from here. I have one remaining problem however...


      I've added our license key to the deployment script as I would in XP, but it does not seem to get picked up by the OS. I'm wondering if it's because it appears that Win7 needs activation and the OS does not have the proxy settings in it?


      What is the best way of getting this key recognised and activated please? Could I even do it in the base image (I'm guessing not as I'm sure WIndows will detect substantial hardware and require activation again).


      Any ideas please?


      Cheers - Paul
