Converting Windows 7 volume install from KMS to MAK

Most Windows 7 licenses at UCLA should be deployed via UCLA’s KMS over the network.

However, some users’ systems are offline and hence will require that you use a MAK.

To convert from the KMS to the MAK, the steps are somewhat different than Windows Vista’s GUI. You must use the CLI:

1. Click Start, click All Programs, click Accessories, and then right-click Command Prompt.

2. Click Run as administrator.
If you are prompted for an administrator password, type the password. If you are prompted for confirmation, click Continue.

3. At the command prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER:
slmgr -ipk xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx
Note In this command, xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx represents your MAK product key.
