Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition
I WAS TOLD SOME YEARS AGO THAT TO FIND THE PRODUCT KEY TO AN OPERATING SYSTEM CD TO GO INTO THE "UNATTEND.TXT" FOLDER AND SCROLL TO THE BOTTOM TO FIND IT; WELL SURE ENOUGH THERE IS A PRODUCT KEY BUT IT ONLY SOMETIMES WORKS IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE CD I AM USING, IS THERE A NEW OR UPDATED WAY TO FIND THE PRODUCT KEY WITHIN THE CD INFO?
If you have an original factory CD, there are numbers on the CD that can be used by Microsoft to help you out. Try calling them and ask.

That was somewhat correct a long time ago. Microsoft caught on to that one. Due to changes in product key series,..The Key in the unattended.txt is meant as a sample placeholder in the file (the unattended.txt is meant to be customized for unattended installations of windows xp). I am not sure how the key in the file will work "sometimes" and not others. It definitely will not pass WGA since it will have been used by a substantial number of installs over the years.
Are you looking for a key that will work for an install you are wanting to do? There are keygens out there to do just that.
I hope this helps you,.. any further questions,.. dont hesitate to ask.

Use a product key recovery program to find your lost key. An example of such a program is Product Key Explorer
Install the program by double-clicking on the file you just downloaded and going through the installation process.
Open the program when ready and then click "select computer" and make sure it says "Local Computer." Click on the "Find Keys" button.
Locate the program that you installed through your CD-ROM. Next to the product name should be your product key.
