I used this myself on stand alone windows 7 machines, found on a Technet blog some time ago.


A computer's SID is stored in the Registry's SECURITY hive under HKLM\SECURITY\SAM\Domains\Account. This key has a value named F and a value named V. The V value is a binary value that has the computer SID embedded within it at the end of its data. In other words, the last 12bits of the V value represent the computer’s SID.

Please follow the steps of the example to get the computer’s SID in the registry:

Get the last 12bits of the V value. We take 07, 11, 50, 45, 0B, B1, D5, 42, CD, 43, 6B, 4E as an example.
Divide the bytes into three sections: 07, 11, 50, 45-0B, B1, D5, 42-CD, 43, 6B, 4E.
Reverse the order of bytes in each section: 45, 50, 11, 07-42, D5, B1, 0B-4E, 6B, 43, CD.
Convert each section into decimal: 1162875143-1121300747-1315652557.
Add the machine SID prefix. For example, S-1-5-21-1162875143-1121300747-1315652557.
Note: If you can’t see the hive, please modify the permission of the key SECURITY. Right-click on the key Security, and then click on Permissions. Modify your permission to Full Control, and then update the registry.
