Standardize DeploymentScripted Activation
For both the 'Single Product Key \ Multiple Activations' and 'Multiple Product Keys \ Single Activation' methods, activations can be scripted. For information on how, please see the following knowledgebase article:
Standardize your Start8 deployment configuration with the group policy template. This capability enables large deployments to define standard group configurations controlling available features and appearances such as the specific available start menu options, exposed end user customizations and the start menu appearance, skin and colors.Uniform Layout Template (Fences only)
The Fences layout template enables you to ensure every PC in your deployment has a uniform implementation. During installation, the layout template will control what Fences are created, where they are placed and which icons are moved into each Fence ensuring all users have an identical implementation.
