We currently have 40 machines that are being upgraded to Windows 7 Enterprise. One machine will need to have software installed on them, and then imaged and deployed to the other 39 machines. The client has purchased Volume Licenses for these machines and we will be using MAK's for activation.
With MAK keys, you can use the same key on multiple machines. These keys deduct from a pool of activations kept in the VLSC. If we are going to be using these keys on multiple machines can we activate it on the image machine, and deploy the activated machine, or would we have to deploy the unactivated image to all 39 other machines and activate them individually?
We are also doing this for Microsoft Office, I assume the process is similar.
