Silently activate Windows 7 in SCCM OSD TS

August 25, 2011

When you want to roll out Windows 7 to a couple of workstations, but do not have enough of them to justify a KMS server, you are forced to use a MAK key.
No problem, but activating the key after the installation requires Admin rights, so i cannot be done by the user itself.
If only we could do this silently as part of our SCCM OSD TS…
Fortunately this guy made a nice thingy that prevents the “Congratulations, Windows has now been activated!!” screen from f-ing up my silent TS.
