Free product key

Not sure if you still have the original packaging, but in some cases the product key is also available on the install manual that came with the product. If you do not have the original packaging you can perform the following and retrieve the product key. If you can start your guest operating system and that system is Windows 95, Windows 98, or Windows Millennium, follow these steps to find your product key in the guest operating system:
  1. Start Registry Editor (regedit.exe).
  2. Locate the following key in the registry: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\MIcrosoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ProductKey
  3. Write down the value of the key.
  4. Quit Registry Editor.
If you are not able to perform the following you can always reach out to Microsoft for further assistance. I hope that you have found this information to be useful, and if I can be of any further assistance, please let me know. Thank you for using fixya!

I have windows XP original CD, But I lost the product key how I will get it back ?

Unfortunately , I think you are out of luck. Microsoft sold you the package in a very elaborate boxed package. The package folder on the back had a orange Product Key label attached with a 25 digit/alpha code. It states on the back folder rigt below that sticker, "Don't Lose This Product Key!"

"You must use it every time you install this software. So be sure to store this folder in a safe place."

I know of no way of recovering this key as it is embedded in the code on the disk and is in coded form as to preclude a search. Each issue of the software has a unique Product Key and must be entered before the software will allow you to register and enter another code from Microsoft. This is Microsoft's method of preventing piracy.

I need to reload Windows 2000 Pro on a corupt IBM Thinkpad.

Assuming you have no data to lose,,,, you could always try to download copy of Windows 2000 Professional and burn it to a CD. Before you do this,,, you have to make sure you have a sticker somwhere on your laptop with your original product key. If you do decide to download Windows 2000 Professional,,, make sure its an OEM copy,,, and of course there is no guarantee that it will be a full copy, or a copy without virus's in it. DO NOT try to download Windows 2000 Professional if you dont have the original product key, as it is illegal. Also,,, do not try and find a product key online,,, that is also illegal. I have to be perfectly clear that the only legal way to download somethign like Windows 2000 Professional is if u have the original product code or key. You can than use this newly burned copy to format and reinstall windows, and than from IBM's web site u can download all the drivers needed for your model
