N00b question about Windows activation

Discussions about using Windows guests in VirtualBox.

Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
ipconfig /all | find [...]

That's what I tried before (when I was playing around with a shutdown script). However I found the the startup script did not run in time, i.e. WPA read the "other" version first, before the correct one could be copied over the top. Secondly of course this still doesn't get around the possible genuine advantage problem (since you have two hardware profiles registered to one license).

However the updated (and much easier) method which I've tested surely is much better since Windows thinks the hardware is similar enough... so I'm happy now :)

Did anybody write a script to take the dmidecode output and turn it into VBoxManage commands to set all DMI settings at once? :mrgreen:

Yes, I saw that one thanks ... but you still have to copy/paste from the output of dmidecode to the script and I'm a lazy guy :mrgreen:
