Does anyone know where you can find the windows server 2000 cd key? I lost my case and can't therefor reinstall so I was wondering if you knew where the key is hidden or of a good program to pull it. Thanks

Hi StrategicGnomer,

The tool ProduKey from nirsoft can retrieve this key, along with Office, etc. Link: http://nirsoft.net/utils/product_cd_key_viewer.html

Cheers,

The tool System Information for Windows should be able to detect the key - but before trusting ANY key program, test the key before wiping and reinstalling your system. (Setup a virtual PC and install the OS there, using the pulled key).
