the idea here was to have the install input the product key and vista
version for use in audit mode automatically. yes you can just bypass it
manually but why bother if you can get by it automatically. for anyone who's
trying to accomplish this you can put in the product key under, setup
natural/user data/product key aslong as you reseal, it will ask for
another product key as it should...
