I use WDS for deploying through the school and I'm just setting a new image (not done one for a while, we've changed school type and makeup and don't need some of the crap that is currently installed on them (such as the an older version of TextEase that we've upgraded etc).
Anywho, last time I just put up with the going round, logging on and activating each flippin machine once it had finished installing, but this time we have a few more machines on site (like we've doubled up pretty much) so I don't to spend the time keeping check on the machines and would really like to get this going properly for once.
We have Windows 7 Professional with VLK Licensing from our LEA and Office 2010 with VLK.
As I say, I use WDS for the imaging of the machines, so any pointers would be greatly appreciated to avoid having to logon with an admin account each time I've done a machine to get the flippin thing to activate.
Do you use an unattend.xml file for naming and joining the machine to the network. I also add into ours the licence key for office and windows and use the scripts contained for activation to activate the computers. It does require an active internet connection but generally works well here.
c:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office14\ospp.vbs
If you want anymore info or example of our .xml file pm me and i will send it over to you.
