Windows Setup Edition Configuration and Product ID Files (EI.cfg and PID.txt) Applies To: Windows 8, Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2012 R2
The edition configuration (EI.cfg) file and the product ID (PID.txt) file are optional configuration files that you can use to specify the Windows® product key and the Windows edition during Windows installation. You can use these files to automate the product-key entry page in Windows Setup instead of using an an- swer file. If you use an EI.cfg file to differentiate volume license media, but you do not include a PID.txt file, the user receives a prompt for a product key to continue Windows Setup.
You can reuse the product key in the product ID file for multiple installations. The product key in the prod¬uct ID file is only used to install Windows. This key is not used to activate Windows.
