Hi Darrell, thanks for the reply. I found my problem. I had used the VL
media but my coworker had syspreped the machine using the KMS VL in the xml
file. We changed that to the Product Key that came prepackaged in the VL and
now things are back to the way i would expect them to be. Now i just have to
figure out a way to maintain the damn 25 Client count on my KMS server....
what a pain.
thanks for your input.
