  1. create skipable product key installation ISO


    Im not trying to do anything illegal or anything but i want to create a skipable installation iso. Ive been able to successfully do this with windows 8/8.1. The reason for me to do this is I work at a computer repair shop and we do a lot of installs. To keep up a fast pace i find it easier to skip the product key initially and activate it later. I cant seem to find the ei.efg file to edit. Perhaps they changed the format of the install..Thanks for the help

    Windows 10 exe to iso

    I recently upgraded from windows 7 to 10. I made the mistake of selecting the exe files during download and installation. I would like to create an ISO version on USB that I can use for a future clean installation. Since I was not given a product key for
    the upgrade, I cannot just download an ISO version.

    My questions: How can I create an ISO image from the exe files on my computer? Will this have the product key embedded in it?

  3. product key changed

    Get the ISO, create bootable media, boot from it, clean install. The product key should be embedded in the BIOS *if* it is a legitimate pre-install.

    You should be able to skip the product key currently. Are you just not finding it? Lower left-hand side, called "Do this later"

    Put the generic Windows 10 product key that everyone gets from an upgrade into an unattended.xml answer file:
    Download AutoUnattend.xml For Windows 10

    You'll probably have to make different DVDs for Home and Pro, each with their respective product key in the answer file.

    As per DustSailor comment above you can leave key till later, Microsoft are now allowing install of clean win 10 install without a prior version as long as you have the legitimate key for that prior up-gradable version.

  7. ill check out about adding that file thanks for the info...

    and perhaps i just jumped the gun and didnt pay close enough attention. if MS allows you to skip the key as is then thats even better for me....*Zip. Thanks again. Sorry i didnt notice the do it later option....

    I thought that was only for recent Insider builds, not for the versions you get from the Media Creation Tool??
