I am a systems administrator and we are getting ready to deploy Windows 7 to our users. In our process of learning about activation, we activated a Windows 7 computer with our MAK key using Internet activation instead of doing proxy activation through VAMT 2.0. The computer is activated, but if we need to reinstall that computer (as it is a technician computer), we'll have to re-activate it and use another one of our allotted activations.
What I'm wondering is if there is a way to gather the installation ID and confirmation ID off of that Windows 7 laptop so I can paste it into or VAMT 2.0 XML (.cil) file? That will give us the ability to just re-apply the confirmation ID should we need to reinstall that computer. I don't need to know how to paste the installation ID and confirmation ID into the .cil file as I already know how to do that. I'm more looking for a way to extract the installation ID and confirmation ID from the Windows 7 computer.
