Changing the COA (Using the same Acronis image on multiple machines (no site license))
Posted on 2005-05-09
Hello. We're using Acronis True Image to backup the files on the machines here at the new IT job I recently got.
Not the same IT job may have mentioned before. A much smaller place...that doesn't have a site license for WinXP. So the only machines that have XP are the ones that came with it and COA sticker from Dell (they buy only Dell machines).
Anyway, since we buy only Dells, despite buying far fewer machines than the place I used to work for, many of the machines we get in are of the same model. So here we have a nice image of, say, a Dell GX270 with all the WinUpdates, drives, and all...
But if I through that image onto another machine, we have duplicate COAs!
Is there a way I can reinput the correct COA onto the machine I put the other machine's image on? Perhaps if I delete a particular registery key from the image itself, it will ask me for it? And then I can put in the correct one?
