VAMT is your friend here. See the technet article below for instructions:
Just deployed a load of laptops running Windows 7 Pro... Only to notice that it was set to use a MAK key and not KMS.
Is there a script or something that I can use on startup/login that will change it to KMS and activate?
I've been using VAMT, but they have to be switched on don't they?
As you say the VAMT tool is no good really because the machines have to be on.
Running this as a startup script will do it. (batch file)
NOTE: That code is for change Windows 7 Pro to KMS. Its not a personal key, its widely available on the internet and published by Microsoft. Other operating systems can be found here - Appendix A: KMS Client Setup KeysCode:cscript C:\Windows\System32\slmgr.vbs /ipk FJ82H-XT6CR-J8D7P-XQJJ2-GPDD4 cscript C:\Windows\System32\slmgr.vbs /ckms
EDIT: You will need to make it so the script only runs once, or it will run on every startup. I will see i can amend it.

This script will only run on startup once.
Code:if exist "C:\Windows\KMS-Convert.txt" goto :eof ELSE cscript C:\Windows\System32\slmgr.vbs /ipk FJ82H-XT6CR-J8D7P-XQJJ2-GPDD4 cscript C:\Windows\System32\slmgr.vbs /ckms>C:\Windows\KMS-Convert.txt

Was it the script you used in the end?
