Last Modified: 2012-05-10
I am getting an error message with my product key when trying to install windows, I cannot install this without key. The error message is as follows (The Product ID you entered is not valid) I used this same disk for a successful install on the same machine only a month ago. Is there anyway to recover Key from my installation CD, or any other way? Software is not fully installed. Thanks
