Hello I have a Compal FL90 laptop. I installed Windows 7 SP1 and set it up the way I wanted (installed drivers and so on) and then activated Windows legally. Then I made a HDD image just to backup purposes in case something went wrong. After this I ran sysprep and booted into audit mode to delete the account and profile that I used to install everything as is shown on this webpage: technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd744512(WS.10).aspx Then after that I did sysprep /oobe For some on the Windows 7 Setup screen it asks for the product key again. If I type it in it won't try to activate because Windows is already activated. However I would like it to not ask for the key since it's already activated and it seems stupid at all On the webpage it says this and it's right, the computer is activated, but it asked for the key!
