Many years ago I created a slipstreamed version of Windows XP with my product key embedded in an unattended set-up file that was in the disk/ISO.

I have been struggling to find out where or how I can integrate my key into the RTM version ISO for Windows 8. Does anyone know how I can do this with Windows 8?

Thanks in advance.

Windows 8 has not been released yet. This will be possible. The tools used to do this simply have to be updated by their respected authors. – Ramhound Sep 5 '12 at 12:29
@Ramhound, Windows 8 has been released to all MSDN members, so we can use it right now. – PhonicUK Sep 5 '12 at 12:38
Yes PhonicUK, you are correct. I have an MSDN account and access to the RTM ISO for Windows 8. – Seany84 Sep 5 '12 at 13:02
@PhonicUK - I am more then aware of that. The author of this question of course will have to wait for those tools to be updated. They could also write their own I suppose. All the documentation of course might not have been released, I do remember a blog entry from Microsoft on this very subject also a Zdnet article. – Ramhound Sep 5 '12 at 13:05
@Ramhound see Moab's answer. Your posts in this thread have been completely incorrect and totally misleading. – Seany84 Sep 5 '12 at 15:30
