Music weekly #3 Fabulous Music Art

The days of going out and buying an LP, is long time gone. As a format for music I really don't miss it at all, even though there is people claiming to the sound quality, which was superior (most notable in old recordings that was not made for the digital format).
But the thing missing with todays music purchases are the visual pleasures. Coming home with a brand new LP was a 2 part deligth, the music itself, the cover art and some times all pictures, artwork and lyrics inside the sleev. Many artist still create greate art for cd covers, but the cd are just to small to really enjoy it.

Thanks to the fabulous art of Mark Wilkinson I have several great pices hanging around my house, and thankt to his web page The Masque everybody can enjoy some of the greates album covers of all time.

Mark Wilkinson have created art works for Marillion, Fish, Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Jimmy Page, The Who and lots more. This week he updated his web page, and I found this amazing picture of a group called Koritni. Checking on Spotify, and found some older albums from them, it looks like the album with Mark Wilkinsons art work haven't been released yet.

Listning to the record on Spotify was a positive experience, this is good old fasion Hard Rock.

Changing Windows product key (license) for a MDT OS deployment task

Creating a new OS deployment task in MDT you will be asked to specify product key

That’s easy enough, but what if you type in the wrong key or just want to change it (add it) later? You might even have gotten a new MAK.

That is not as easy, you cannot do it from the graphical interface, you have to do it from one of the configuration files. Well you might to it from graphical interface by typing it in every time deploying a computer gets deployed but that is not a great solution.

MDT - The task sequence has been suspended. LiteTouch is trying to install applications

Every now and then I get this error message when fuelling a computer with MDT:
"The task sequence has been suspended. LiteTouch is trying to install applications. This cannot be performed in Windows PE."

How to get and use the Windows key from UEFI/BIOS

I found myself in the situation that I needed to get the Windows key out from the ACPI in the UEFI bios and preferable get to use it in a task sequence in MDT.

There are different ways of doing this, but I wanted to do this with little code and easy to understand.
There is a nice tool created to get the key on github, created by Christian Korneck, called get_win81key. This tool gives you the key in plane text. You can get it

If I were supposed to do this manually, I now would just take that key and type it in with slmgr command or in the GUI. But I want to do this within a task in MDT.
Testing a couple of solutions without using the get_win8key with my great scripting guru colleague HÃ¥vard ( and figuring out that it cannot be done with default powershell stuff, it needs more code. Therefore, we quickly figured out that some use of the “get_win8key” files is the easiest way, but we need a way of setting the output fro…
