I am planning to make a Windows installation in some laptops. I ve planned to make installations, new settings etc in one laptop, take an imageof the disk and mount the image to the other machines. The questions is, what can I do if Windows are already activated? It's a bit illegal I think. Any ideas?
If you are not using a Volume Licence Key to be legal you will need to enter in a new key for each machine after you load the image. (at the bottom of the 2nd link there is a command line version so you could script it to make the action of loading the image faster.)
