Installing Windows 2008 or Windows 7 using EasyInstall in VMWare

When you try to install the new breed of Microsoft OS' on a VMWare Workstation, especially using a iso image, VMWare gives us the option of going with "Easy Install" and prompts us for the product key right in the beginning, after the installation starts, it gives us a invalid key message!

Quite annoying, don't worry, all you need to do is open the autoinst.flp file in notepad and re-enter the key...

Now start the VM and the installation will go through fine!
