Please help - Windows 7 WAIK RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, I am running through the MCTS material and have came across a section that I do understand but one thing is confusing me. WAIK allows you to capture and deploy Windows 7. Meaning take an image from a refrence computer and deploy it to another. That I understand. What I dont get and cant find anywhere on here is the fact that would that not mean that both computers (or more) will have the same Product ID? Or am I just thinking stupid?? Someone please help.

  • The WAIK can be used in conjunction with a software called Sysprep to remove any identifying information from the image.  It removes any user profiles, unique IDs (GUID, SID, etc.), and product keys.
