Is it possible to extract the CD Key from a win2k installation
Posted on 2003-12-08
Hi Everyone, and thanks in advance for taking the time to look at this:
Is there a way to extract the CD Key from Win2k installations?
Our company has approximately 3 win2k computers (the rest are XP), all of these computers were purchased before I was hired as IT assistant and are White-Box PC's. Thus they have OEM installs of Win2k, but the guy who built them neglected to put the Win2k Pro license sticker (w/CD Key) on them. I have the stickers, but I'd like to know which PC they go on. I know the easiest way to solve this is to format them and reinstall windows and attach the key's, but they are kind of critical (SQL Servers) and I dont want to invest 8 hours just to get CD Keys aligned.
