Can I do an image of Windows 7 already activated with a MAK Key?

By techin ·

I activated windows 7 with a MAK key. Can I do an image of it (ghost, winclone) and copy it to other workstations?

MAK : Multiple Activation Keys

I guess I will have to reactivate every workstation.

Any other possible issues?

Yes you can and provided that it's the same hardware that you copy to it will not require reactivation.

However if it is different hardware after you install the necessary drivers it will require reactivation again, just the same as if you took the originally activation changed things in that computer updated it to the new configuration and then tried to start it again.

Thanks for answering.

Since I will copy the image on different machines. Reactivate is not a big deal since I don't plan to reinstall win 7 in the next 2-3 years.
