    Thank you for the speedy reply and the cordial language, however, I'm not sure you read the question correctly. I have a computer repair business and NEVER has there been an activation code for Microsoft OFFICE on the computer in sticker or any other exterior media.

  • MCR700 May 09, 2010

    Trying to extract OFFICE 2007 ACTIVATION CODE from un bootable hard drive? Any suggestions?

  • MCR700 May 09, 2010

    OK, your answer is frustrating me. If I had the CD or DC CASE, I wouldn't be asking the question. Keep in mind that I am a computer technician asking for help solving a very difficult problem. Let me ask this one more time with complete explanation and if I cant get an answer I am cancelling my account.


    I have a laptop that has a defective motherboard. I cannot boot from the laptops hard drive because you CAN NOT put a hard drive from one computer in a different computer and boot from it unless they have the same motherboard. So, there is NO OTHER WAY that the hard drive can be accessed other then making it an external USB drive. HOW DO I RETRIEVE THE OFFICE ACTIVATION CODE so that I can install the customers office on there new computer.


    Please don't waste my time with any other answer other then my question. How do I get the code from the ext drive that has an office installation on it!!!


    OK, I'm just frustrated and hope that didn't sound insulting, please try harder.

  • MCR700 May 09, 2010

    I have a laptop with a defective mobo. I.E. I cannot boot from the hard drive. I can turn the laptop HDD into an ext. drive and get to the data, but how do I recover the OFFICE 2007 ACTIVATION CODE from the laptop HDD. Please answer my question or say you don't know. If I get one more slick answer like "look on the sticker on the back of the computer", I'm cancelling this account!

  • MCR700 May 10, 2010

    Man o man, I cant believe you actually responded with that answer. I have everything you said captured and I'm prepared to send it to your supervisor and his, which I'm sure will cause you to get fired. however, you can save your job by answering the question and not ever recommending stealing software again. I have the drive hooked as an external and need to extract the purchased office key from it. If it's like the win xp key it's in the registry somewhere and must be decrypted with a hive editor or something like that.


    So don't worry, you messed up, but there is redemption, just get to work on this and don't mess with key generators. :)

  • MCR700 May 10, 2010

    Are you sure this will tell me the product key from an installation on an external drive that was not booted from? Ya, the sticker thing was nuts.

  • MCR700 May 10, 2010

    So your solution is to find some software that will retrieve the key from an external. GREAT!!! Thats what I was doing before I asked the question. Your finally up to speed. I need to know what software will do this. I need a solution!!!!!

  • MCR700 May 14, 2010

    where are the hive files that contain the OFFICE 2007 key located in windows vista

  • MCR700 May 14, 2010

    If you waste my time with one more lame answer I will include you in the list of un qualifieds. WHERE ARE THE HIVES IN VISTA THAT CONTAIN THE OFFICE KEY

Hi,

I have some information for you. I know a free program to extract Office product key from the residing computer or an external media. Please click here to visit the download page.

First you need to hook-up the non-bootable drive as an external media and then run the program.

After running the program click on the button depicted in the diagram below in red circle and specify the destination (external hard disk).

Next, make the appropriate selection so that the program extracts the key from the external drive and not your own key.

Hope it sorts out your issue. Thank you and good luck!

You will need to access the key by connecting the hard disk to another pc and then read the files on the hard disk.The amount of effort and expertise that you will require is not worth the time though.There are some key generators which you can use but I cannot mention anymore about this as it is a breach of copyright laws.Try bittorent for this generator.Hope this helps.

    Lol..have a look at this link : http://www.tips4pc.com/Freeware/Belarc-a... . It is a freeware program that will tell you the product key. I don't think I need to explain further as you are already experienced and aware of what you are doing..Funny some experts will tell you to look at the bottom near the sticker though.Hope this helps.

  • heeman mohun May 10, 2010

    It should read the files from the hard disk. So basically it will show up as a different hd on whichever computer it is connected. Just like a virus scan which you can select drive to read.Try it as there is no other way unless the hard drive is hooked up to a different pc. You can also look for some linux software that allows you to boot from a cd and once done, you could try to read the h. drive.

  • heeman mohun May 10, 2010

    I guess you did not understand what I meant.I gave you one software that would do it which is free and other ways to overcome this problem is Linux,an open source too. Based on the fact that you are experienced I supposed I did not need to point out which linux version can do this.But to conclude I gave you the link and software(a freeware) that will do this job.

You can recover your bootable harddrive with windwos disk.
For that boot computer with windows disk and choose repair option for repair windows.
But if you are not able to repair windows then you can register office 2007 with license key which comes when you bought disk it is on disk cover or surface of the disk.
But if you haven't any disk cover and disk then you need recover software for recover data from harddrive.
But before that connect your harddrive to computer where windows boot up fine it is possible to get data from it.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks for using FixYa.

Hi! Try to check some sticker labels on your pc. It is usually indicated there including the microsoft operating systems serial key. On laptops it is usually underneath or if not remove the battery and its sometimes located there. Hope this helps and have a good one!

I have the trial version of microsoft office 2007 on my comp - haven't acitivated. i bought the product key to the microsoft office 2010. how do i get 2007 upgraded to 2010 to use my product key???


You can go to Microsoft then look at the office web pages. They will have links to download a 30 day trial of 2010. Simply download install and then use your key and activate and you then will have full 2010.

On the 2007 help one of the items should be goto the office web page.

Beyond that, if you cannot Run a Repair of the program through Add/Remove Programs in Control Panel, you might have to perform a manual install of it again.
