Imaging with OEM licensing

463 Views
Last Modified: 2013-12-02
Hello,

Our company orders our computers from Dell with OEM licenses of Office and XP.  I am starting to try to image our machines, but have a couple questions.  1st, is it legal to build one image and roll it out to multiple computers with only OEM licensing?  2nd, I use sysprep to prepare the image and I enter the OEM license key during the installation.  After the cloning is done using Ghost, it won't let me activate and says invalid product key.  What is the best and legal way to do this using OEM licensing?  

Thanks
