    Hi there!

    Can anyone tell me the slmgr-option to completely hide (not restoreable) the Windows-Key?
    I know there is one but I couldn't find it... :(

    Thanks in advance

    of you can since its known key, this would be viable for unknown ones :)


    well for example, oems would intergrate key with dism and then hide it, so they would prevent to be used on other maschines, since it wouldnt show eather on install dvd or on maschine it self...
