    Hello friends,


    can someone help me in editing a windows 8 iso in poweriso and adding the saved permanent activation (i have done with ATM) so that whenever i install this iso again on my system i don't have to activate.

    i am also trying to use a script made by PAYMYRENT user here on this forum.


    please help me in editing the file setupcomplete.cmd

    can someone help me with the steps required.

    thanks in advance

    cheers!

    If you prefer some reading then this post will give exact how to... But you have to change that a bit to active your result..

    If you got that right then ISO will for your current PC only...

    I can confirm that it did not work. it was very quick unattended installation but activation failed with folder

    $OEM$$$setupscripts
    -----

    (AutoRestore-x64.exe
    config.ini
    data.data
    setupcomplete.cmd
    token.dat)
    and burnt as an iso

    Update

    Also tried it on physical same PC and got the error that says that basicaly means once you try to activate windows with media centre it fails. solution? to re-install without media centre first activate and then use media centre afterwards. The trouble with this is that Ms would knock out all legi customers too who upgraded using the $15 because once they re-install and then try to use their purchased key($15 it would fail)
