MDT 2010 Windows XP Product Key Issue

I configured a Dell workstation with windows XP Pro how I wanted it.  I then used MDT 2010 to sysprep and capture the image and create the WIM.  After that I created the task sequence to deploy the image I created and filled out the field for product key.  However, when the image is being deployed to the target system, a message comes up during mini setup telling me the wrong product key is being used.  The product key displayed is NOT the product key I specified.  If I type in the correct product key the system continues.  Where do I change this product key that is being used??  Where did it come from?

Strange for me it's working...Here's the part:

I had to enter the product key in the sysprep.inf that is in sysprep folder on the actual image. Putting the key in the TS or in the control folder would not work for me when I was creating my images. But it works every time as long as I place the key on the actual image I captured. Of course I never use the build and capture feature. I just manually build my image and capture with imagex.
