Every user have it's own key. It is totally illegal to use a key that belongs to another user.

There are certain points that might help you :-

1. If you already have the Windows installed and you want the key, follow ;-

Go to my computer>Right click properties>Product ID.

Keep a note of it and use it next time you install Windows. You can create a dump copy of all the files and make a CD out of it. Use the same key that appears in your profile.

2. If you have bought a New Cd online or might be from a Dealer, write an email to him or call the dealer. They do have a track of the Cd's. They might help you.

3. If there is no way, you can call Microsoft. This is totally on their discretion. You can tell him, the situation. They might issue or honor another Product ID based on your information with them.

In short, i am afraid, you have lost the money you invested but still there is a slight hope if you could follow the above steps.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Do accept the solution, if 100% satisfied from my service!!

I need to do a windows repair but I cannot find my cd. Can I download one and save it to a disk and install it on a different computer

Ask your friends to borrow either a "retail" Windows XP Home Edition CD-ROM (bought when XP was available in retail stores) or an "OEM" (Original Equipment Manufacturer) version. The OEM version was used by Microsoft-licensed "system-builders" (small computer-stores that assemble computers from the individual components, and then install this "generic" version of Windows).

If you have the "genuine Windows" decal on the side of your desktop, use that 25-character product-key and the "borrowed" CD-ROM to reinstall Windows.

I dont have the cd i need to repair my windows xp home edition

I would suggest trying a friend or 2 to see if you can borrow theirs. Why do you need to repair XP? What is the problem exactly?

Most newer systems have a recovery partition on the hard drive. See your user guide find out how to recover your system. Most likely you will lose everything because the recovery partition option puts the system back to exactly like the day you bought it.

Hope you have backups of your files if you have to do this...

You can not get CD key, serial #., crack and code in fixya under the circumstances with the law of piracy. Go to microsoft center and buy a genuine copy of software you need. Only the manufacturer can give a licensed key of their products.
