    Group activation of an image on multiple machines


    My organization supplied me with a group of Window 10 Enterprise computers activated using MAK keys. They are all going to run the same applications and be deployed a different facilities. Setting up the first one was painstaking but I finally got everything just right. I created an image of it and restored it to the next computer but it didn't bring the MAK key with it. Is there a way to image the first computer to the rest and maintain their activation?

    :)

    WIN10 activation of deployed image (Multiple PCs)


    Will subsequent installs automatically activate when I do a sysprepped image-device copy to said machines?
    If volume licensing will be more expensive, then it is likely we will get separate windows keys. I looked up the price, and 840 euros for 24 licenses seems like a good deal.
    Basically what I'm doing, but using PXE boot to deploy a reference image. Doing that restore on all 24 computers manually takes too long.


    Basically what I want to know now is:
    1. I make a reference image
    2. Sysprep that image
    3. PXE boot and spread image to 24 pcs
    4. activate windows 10 on 24 pcs
    5. Repeat step 3 every 10 weeks.

    My understanding is, that the windows key will be bound to the machine (CMID). Now when I respread the same sysprepped image to all 24 devices every 90 days they will still be activated under that same key (automatically). Is this correct?

    how do I get machine id for activation purposes?

    Hi Fred,

    Machine ID also known as Product ID is being used to identify the device. We suggest following the steps below to get the product ID of your device:

    • Type about your PC on the search box.
