    Avoid that the input window of the product keys is displayed


    Hi

    Using Windows ADK 10 v1511, I injected the three product keys in the respective volume images of the Multiple Editions (MSDN) and Education (MSDN) isos of Windows 10 v1511.

    When, however, I boot these isos, the input window of the product keys is still displayed during the first installation phase of Windows 10. Why?

    How do I avoid that this window appears in order to immediately display the window that allows to choose the edition to install?

    Thanks

    Bye

    You can't do both. You can't skip the presentation of the product key window and have it ask for which edition to install. Insert the product key for the edition you want installed in a PID.txt file:

    [PID]
    Value=XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX

    Product key goes in place of xx's obviously. Save the PID.txt file in the sources directory of the Windows 10 Install media. That will skip the product key window, but it will also define which version of Windows 10 gets installed so it will also skip the choose which version choice window as well.

    It is possible to include in pid.txt file or in some other file the various product keys corresponding to the respective volume images that exist in the install.wim file?

    Thanks

    As far as I know, you can only put one product code in the PID.txt file, and the code you enter there will determine what version is installed. My laptop has a Windows 8.0 Core OEM key. The current Windows 10 install media will read it and install 10 Home. I have a digital entitlement on that laptop for Pro so I put the Pro generic key in my PID.txt. Pro is installed with no prompt for a key and no prompt to chose edition. I think your just going to have to click skip when asked for a key. If you have a Volume License key for Education, using it in the PID.txt should work.

    It is possible to create an autounattend.xml file and insert in it the product keys related to all editions included in the install.wim file?

    Thanks

    If I create an autounattend.xml file in the root directory of the media and insert this block

    Code:
    <UserData>
       <ProductKey>
          <WillShowUI>Never</WillShowUI>
       </ProductKey>
    </UserData>
    I avoid displaying the input window of the product keys during the first phase of installation and therefore, the window, which lists the editions included in the install.wim file, is displayed immediately. Right?

    Thanks
