Simply type the default product key into the answer file used to preinstall the version of Windows that your customer requested.

				</ProductKey>
				<AcceptEula>true</AcceptEula>

Note These product keys cannot be used for activation. You will need to type a software product key during the installation process. These keys will be removed when sysprep generalize is run. The end user will be required to type the unique product key from the Certificate of Authenticity (COA) label when first booting Windows 8.
