    it is if you sysprep when you restart it will ask for licance key if it is all done right. but you might find the key which has been put on all the pcs will not work so you will to get a least on key.

    Re: This copy of windows is not Genuine

    so we cant use oem images to ghost to the same type of pc?
    I personally have not noticed that this has happened and all of my OEM PCs in my schools are cloned from master machines.

    Maybe I'm just lucky and the brown stuff is on its way

    regards

    I have found with sys prep it requires an origional XP disk, other than those such as what come with the dell machines, the OEM discs etc. Thats just me of course like.

    Re: This copy of windows is not Genuine

    Its not to much of a prob if you run wsus as the pcs only contact the local server. If they every one keeps contacting ms with the same key this is when the issue becomes apprant to ms. So what do they do yep Stop the key. If you have not had a problem you are either very lucky OR you have imaged the origanal install which if you cheack the key is not a key from any machine you own. The problem comes if you do a reinstall and then put in that machines key and ghost that. If the origanal install has been imaged there should not be a problem as the key is a oem volume key that only works on there machines. what it sounds like is that si has ghosted orignal install and the person who imaged yours did not.
