I'm trying to deploy Windows 7 images on a few Latitude E6430s using K2000.
I run Sysprep with
oobe generalize shutdown options.
I'm able to capture and deploy an image sucessfully, but unfortunately the system that the image is deployed on boots up and Windows is already activated, and I am not prompted to enter the serial key for Windows.
Does anyone know if that has something to do with the OEM version of Windows that these systems come with?
There is some information out there suggesting that the Windows serial numbers are embedded into the hardware… is that true?
