You're welcome!

If you were to go down the route I mentioned you will be able to use the Product Key on the COA Sticker for each computer as long as it is for the version of Windows 7 that it is for.

I hope this helps!

You can copy boot.wim from the sources folder one of my boot media isos and use it to replace the boot.wim in the sources folder of your installation media.

Then when you boot the installation media, my boot.wim will load and you get a desktop with lots of tools, including winntsetup.
