Hi there,

I am creating a master win7 image for deployment.  I am using WSIM and the win7 pro clg to create an unattend.xlm to use with sysprep.  I have Microsoft VLS and use MAK for our normal upgrades.
I assume, even if I license the master image, when I run sysprep, all that will disappear.  Is there a way using WSIM and the clg to put the license in the unattend.xml?  I have seen, doing research, the answer but it seems all those are using the wim  rather than the clg.
Thanks in advance,
-SM

A .CLG file is a just a catalog file used to generate the available components which could be applied to the appropriate image.  If you use a .WIM it generates the information from that instead of reading directly from a .CLG file.
From my experience, if you have activated the machine that you will be sysprepping with a MAK key, after the sysprep (with the /generalize option) the key will remain on the machine but the OS will need to be activated again.  I have a post in another thread which describes this.
