I've been working on an unattended install for Windows 7 using an .XML file created with Windows SIM.
When I attempt to install with the unattended installation setup quikly gives an error that it needs a productkey.
I would like to know wether it is possible ( and how ) to make use of the 30 day trial so I can give a productkey after the installation.

Thanks in advance.

Hello there
Use this document to elete the one entry in the sim manager,
just delete en entry in WindowsPE\amd64 microsoftwindows setup neutral\userdata\productkey
delete the produkt key in there
there must only be one productkey and that is here specialize\amd64 microsoft windows shell setup neutral  here you have to put the productkey
