    Hi all,

    I've installed and activated Windows 8 Pro, and then I backed up 2 files tokens.dat & data.dat in the store folder just in case of re-installing Windows.
    I wonder if we can create an Auto-activating DVD with $OEM$ including tokens.dat & data.dat. so that the Windows will be activated after a fresh installation done.
    I tried many ways but it still requires activation when the installation is done.
    Does anyone know how-tos ? please share the info with me.

    Thanks a lot for your help in advance.

    Have you check the tutorial of creating an AIO with media center ?
    It shows you how you can replace th data.dat - you can do the same for tokens dat, and also how to insert the key.
