Solved Grab installation image from server without volume license

April 4, 2012 at 15:12:48
Specs: Windows 7 enterprise x64, 2.8 dual/3gb
Hello,
I'm going to be getting some new PC's and was curious if it is legal to make an image with all the software I need, throw it on the server, get the image from the server, install, and then just change the Win7 product key afterwards. I do not have a volume license for win7. This method will save a lot of time, but i need to know the legality of it. I have Googled and couldn't find much. Could somebody point me in the right direction to some info regarding the subject?
Thanks,

"I do not have a volume license for win7. This method will save a lot of time, but i need to know the legality of it."

Without an individual license for each machine or a volume license for all, it's not legal.

I think you misunderstood. I do have an individual license for each one. Each pc comes with a new OS. Basically I want to install one, install all the software I need, then make an ISO. Then take the ISO, copy it onto the new PC's and then change the product key to what it should be.

Microsoft offers all the tools you need to make images and ways to deploy custom versions of Windows 7.
