    I just Purchased Windows Homes Server 2011 And im trying to make a unattended install. i also want to have the oem source folder for logos and other. plus i was wondering if there is a way to make the unattended install to install my key as well instead of the general key?

    Thanks in advance

    No its a oem system builder you buy from newegg. i just want to do a untended install and if it posible to use a sources folder for logos.

    Use this, but you need to edit the batch files (specially the cd key part), as no oem:slp key for WHS 2011 is leaked yet and you can't(?) offline activate it with your system builder key :(
