WIN 10 serial key and licensing, golden image

Jump to solution

Hey, I am planning to prepare few win 10 pro reference images ( a.k.a. golden images). I have over 30 dell computers in my company which already had win 10 pro while we bought them. Operating systems are delivered and preinstalled by DELL. (the license is somehow tied with mainboards). Now my question is- how to create my golden images and avoid problems with licensing ? I dont have any serial numbers since i can get the OS from dell OS recovery Tool. How to make the systems auto activated after install from golden image ? Any hints ?

To create the images a page from MS should help..

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/deployment/deploy-windows-mdt/create-a-windows-10-reference...

As for the key, each computer has the key locked in the BIOS. This is in accordance with Windows 10 Digital Licensing. Each system does not need a key entered.
