WIndows 10 OOBE sysprep licensing question

I've cloned a windows 10 VM and ran sysprep without the generalize option.  If, before bringing it back on the network, I add a new key, will it activate correctly and not deactivate the copy I cloned?

Thanks!

In theory, yes. But if you didn't generalize and it is a clone, there are plenty of oddnthings that can and often do go wrong. Totally unsupported, and without VL, also illegal. Never something I'd recommend doing even with VL.

Thanks for that information.  The license I ordered from CDW is definitely a volume copy.  Sysprep also makes you re-EULA, so I don't know why it would be illegal if you acquire the appropriate license and it activates.  Am I mistaken?

Thanks!
