I need to deploy a sysprep windows 8 & office 2013 OEM for 600 laptops. We will deploy the image with bootable USB 3.0 sticks.

The problem I'm having is with the activation. Because it is an OEM, each laptop needs to be connected directly to the internet. It is almost impossible to connect each device with a network cable while imaging.

Therefor... I want the laptop to be connected to a WiFi network during the sysprep, so it can active itself automatically.

How would you handle this?
