# $OEM$ Folders

(Windows Pre-Activation)

## Overview

• To create a pre-activated Windows installation .iso, do the following things:

• Extract $OEM$ folder to the desktop using the MAS script.

• Copy the $OEM$ folder to the sources folder in the Windows installation media (.iso or USB).

• The directory will appear like this: \sources\$OEM$ in your altered .iso or on your bootable USB drive.

• Now use this .iso or bootable USB drive to install Windows and it will either already be activated (KMS38) as soon as it boots or will self-activate (HWID or Online KMS) at the first internet contact.

## Notes

• MAS AIO version doesn’t contain clipup.exe file, if you need to activate Server Core/Acor editions then please use MAS separate files version.

• You can check here about activation method details and select the activation method as per your requirement.

## HWID
