    I extracted and backed up my cert/key from my OEM HP machine that came with 7. When doing a clean install. Is there a way to add the cert/key into the install for automatic activation? I am using a 7 iso and the MS usb tool. I deleted the ei.cfg file to install what ever version. But like I said. Just need to add the cert/key to the install for automatic activation on my machine.

    Hi,

    I read the sticky last night and was able to insert the key/cert fine manually. Which worked out fine btw. Maybe I should have been more clear in my post. I wanted to add the cert/key into my usb stick and when windows 7 installs. It will be activated already with out me having to do it manually. If there is even a way to do that with in 7?

    Here are two registry files that will allow you to take ownership of the folder from context menu.

    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell\runas]
    @="Take Ownership"
    "NoWorkingDirectory"=""
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell\runas\command]
    @="cmd.exe /c takeown /f \"%1\" && icacls \"%1\" /grant administrators:F"
    "IsolatedCommand"="cmd.exe /c takeown /f \"%1\" && icacls \"%1\" /grant administrators:F"
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\runas]
    @="Take Ownership"
    "NoWorkingDirectory"=""
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\runas\command]
    @="cmd.exe /c takeown /f \"%1\" /r /d y && icacls \"%1\" /grant administrators:F /t"
    "IsolatedCommand"="cmd.exe /c takeown /f \"%1\" /r /d y && icacls \"%1\" /grant administrators:F /t"
    Save as: InstallTakeOwnership.reg

    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    
    [-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell\runas]
    
    [-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\runas]
    Save as: RemoveTakeOwnership.reg

    If you only want automatic activation i would simply use an OEM folder.

    Its clean, simple and quick.

    Just drop the Cert in, add a CMD that installs the PKey, install and enjoy.
