    Auto Fill Key


    When you're installing Windows 10, is it possible to to create a .txt doc that has the key in it or something of that nature on the USB drive that you're installing Windows 10 from so that it auto fills and doesn't ask you for a key during installation?

    There is no key to save. Microsoft’s servers remember the hardware that Windows 10 is installed on. Only time that you may want to keep a copy of the key is if you have paid for an upgrade from say Home.

    Do I need both the EI.cfg and the PID.txt? Or will the PID.txt work by its self?

    I believe both, since the cfg reads the txt. I do not use it though, I just skip entering the key altogether.

    The EI.cfg, how do you fill it out? Can I have an example?

    Yes, Retail or OEM, that depends, what licence you have. Though most likely OEM.
