Can I use a technet product key if we have licenses in place?
Posted on 2012-09-06
I recently built a WDS server and built images for our XP and WIN 7 machines. After completing my XP image, I captured it into WDS and imaged a couple machines. I noticed when the machines were imagaged they prompted me to enter a product key before they would work. The only key I had that would work was my Technet subscription XP pro key. I have to assume that they DVD I burned to create the image was originally made from my Technet subsciption ISO. Will I have licensing issues if I deploy several machines with this key? We have plenty of licenses and each PC has a VISTA license stamped on it, but a disgruntled employee accused us of software pirating a couple years ago and I do not want to send off any red flags by putting my technet key in production. Will I have an issue? Should I go ahead and rebuild my image?
