I have recently started a new job.
One of my tasks is to deploy 10-20 laptops.
From past experience I figured Sysprep and Ghost would be the way forward.
Each laptop has been purchased with a 'retail' copy of XP and a 'retail' copy of office.
I loaded XP onto one of the machines, plus any additional bits and pieces.
I sealed the sysprep and ghosted the image, not supplying the licence key as the onces I have are all seperate.
When trying to restore the image to a 'new' machine, the mini setup asks me for a PID, as expected.
When I try and enter the PID, as per the individual machine's licence, it returns an error telling me that I've entered the wrong key.
After some reading, I have kind of got the impression I should have built the image from a multiple licence disk??
Is there a way around this????
If I can borrow an OLA disk, can I then build the image from that and use my individual licences???
Sorry if the question isnt clear !
