How to use Genuine License of Windows on CCBoot?

If you are using Windows XP, please choose Windows XP Volume License. CCBoot supports XP volume license directly.

If you are using Windows 7 or above version, please use Volume License, such as Microsoft KMS, and refer to the following steps.

Important: If you are using OEM licenses for Windows then the method below will not work for activating windows. You have to use KMS license which can be activated through a KMS host or server.

If you need to activate the client but still want to use OEM license then please use one of the 3rd Party tool to activate Windows. Example: KMS PICO, Reloader 3.0 Beta 3.

Disclaimer: We do not promote or recommend using 3rd party activators or provide any links for such tool. Please use them at your own discretion.
