Currently with Windows XP we have a Volume License edition which requires no activation or activation server.
So for example we buy 30 new laptops with Windows XP Pro, we wipe them and use our version of XP Pro, because the version they come with is not compatable with RIS. We do not buy new licenses because they come with XP Pro Licenses
Now how does this work in Vista? If i read correctly EVERY version has to be activated, either normally, or with an internal Activation server.
So if this is the case, with our new laptops they are coming licensed for Vista (free upgrade). Can i still just wipe them and put our volume license vista on? I am thinking i cannot because our Activation Server internal will have to have X amount of licences?
Does anybody undertstand what i'm saying :?:
