Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition
I tried to do this, reinstall windows xp home, but unfortunately I accidentally did it by using an XP Pro cd, so setup couldn't finish. Basically the windows xp on that hard drive had XP Home, when I boot it up, the XP Pro upgrade installation starts up. Is there a way to retrieve the XP home license key on that hard drive?
You should have the porduct key on the side of the computer if it is a desktop ot on the botton of the laptop.
Win95,98 ME yes, you can see it in the registry.
Windows Xp and up, you need some kind of software to decode the number in the registry.
it calls magic jellybeam keyfinder. this will ge the ket and decode it. how you going to get it on the machine is another story.
you may be able to use the software by hitting F8 just before the Windows logon come on, select safe mode and go from there.
