MDT2013 Automated Activation

As an MSP we use the product keys stored in the BIOS to activate the systems installed via MDT 2013.

I have created a simple activation script via Powershell to be launched as a task in an MDT task sequence.

Save the PowerShell script in the scriproot, located under the \\DeploymentShare$\Scripts

Next we create a new “Run PowerShell Script” task;


Don’t forget to update the DeploymentShare and happy activating!
