Volume Licensing for Dummies - help please
I have just taken delivery of 33 PCs with Windows 7 Home Edition. I've also purchased a Volume Licensing Agreement for Windows 7 professional and Office 2010 and need to upgrade them so I can connect them to the domain.
I can see in VLSC that there are Mac and KMS keys. And I think I understand that I can use the MAC key 50 times, but the KMS key is unlimited? We have paid for 20 full time members of staff, but we have more than 50 pcs that I was planning on eventually upgrading, so I take it that means I need to use the KMS.
I've searched for instructions and found these

Which both suggest I need to set up a KMS server on my Windows 2008 server? And I need to use a Server 2008 key? But I have only got keys for Windows 7/8 and Office 2007/2010/2013, I don't have a KMS key for Server 2008.
I was planning on building one machine, and then using Ghost to replicate. I don't know if this affects my process at all?
