    Just use a generic key, change to legit it once its installed.

    Several ways to skin the cat ... :cool2:. To keep the ISO more generalized i use an ei.cfg file in the \sources\ folder to skip the key input:
    Code:
    [Channel]
    Retail
    
    [VL]
    0 
    Then activate afterwards.
