Use sysprep to build an image and then reseal it with the key in place.

If these are Volume License Copies

You should have got as much Install Media as you ordered and 1 Product Key. The above suggestions are the M$ Recommended manner of use.

However if there are different Product Keys for each Install Disc this Procedure is known by m$ as Bulk Loading and is strictly against the M$ License Agreement. Getting caught doing this will lead to a $250,000.00 Fine from M$ for a First Offense of Piracy and more if it is a Second offense. The Owners Names & Address will also be published in the regular M$ Enforcement Alerts that they Distribute.

If you need to install this onto different Hardware and do have a Volume License but no standardization of Hardware you can use a product like nLite and make Slipstreamed Install Disc's with the Product Key Included.

If you chose to go this way make sure that you read the Guides on their web Site here

OH and Do Not hand out the Install Media. As that is committing Piracy as well.
