  • I will assume that you are using System Image Manger to create the unattended file.

    If this is for the main answer file to install the OS, add the Microsoft-Windows-Setup component to Pass 1 and put the key in the USerDate->ProductKey->Key setting.

    If this is for the sysprep unattended file, add the  Microsoft-Windows-Shell-Setup component to Pass 4and put in the ProductKey setting.

    If you are all the retail keys, the only method is using the generic KMS key to bypass this phase.
