Deploying a Windows7 image and licensing implications
First time I have posted here, but have always found the site very informative, so thought I would put my question to the masses.
I have recently starting working in the education sector, and have been tasked with upgrading an entire school infrastructure to Windows 7 (from XP). My predecessor purchased a large number of pre-installed Windows 7 PCs, which were then downgraded to Win XP until he was prepared to migrate the whole school. Each of the new PCs have a Win7 Pro license associated with it (stamped on the side). AFAIK, the school is no longer part of any EES\School Enrollment scheme. I plan to roll out a Win7 image to all the workstations when convenient.
What I need to know is....If I create a Win7 image, then deploy it via WDS (for example) to all workstations, will I then need to walk around to each PC and update the license key within Windows to match the one stamped on the side of the machine? And also, using this method, will I be compliant within the licensing laws?
