  • Windows 2000 Pro serial number change

    If I install Win 2k Pro, install all applications and drivers...how do I replicate the image to other simmilar computers while changing the Windows Serial Number ?

    I want all computers to use different Windows KEYs, not the same one.

    Would Sysprep allow me to type in another Windows key?

    Thank you,
    Dan

    Never done it myself, but if i rember correctly you can define an odd (database) where sysprep or the answerfile get its information.

      I looked there... it doesn't say anything about changing the key !!! If I am not mistaken sysprep was intended for volume licensing where one key is used for all computers but that is not my case.

        Actually sysprep is not just for volume licensing.

        Sysprep deletes all the unique identifiers from the system, including the product key.

        Let em dig out some old notes as it's been a long time since i done anything remotely involving sysprep.
