Skipping product key entry when deploying Windows 10 without input

Has anyone figured out how to deploy Win10 without it prompting for the product key during installation? I'm not using a volume license so I can't stick it in prior to installation. It looks like Win10 might support ei.cfg in the sources folder, but I'm not sure of the format nor if it would work with SmartDeploy; my few attempts have failed miserably.

After I image using SmartDeploy, going from Windows 7 to Windows 10, I am asked by Windows for a product key, when this screen is up the machine is inaccessible remotely and requires a user input to bypass. I am using an unattended xml to limit user intervention at remote sites with USB deployment.
