How can I add my XP Pro Corporate key to my RIS image so that it won't prompt the user for it when installing? I have added a lot of other unattended features, but I can't get the product key to work. Let me know if you need any more information.

Hi,

Go to the cd image or riprep image dir and add this option to the .sif file, that should do the trick..

[UserData]

ProductID = "F7HX9-FP3F6-2VCBR-6487B-62DQD"

Hi,

This should be working, i also got it working using that key above. Only thing is that you need to add this rule to every .sif file you have. So if you created more than one image, you need to add, change this in every .sif file that is related to that image..
