Windows XP Users if you have your Original CD with you then, Insert WINDOWS XP CD into the CD/DVD Drive and Just explore the CD to find a folder called i386 where you will have a file unattend.txt. Open the text file and you will find the CD serial key of your Windows Xp when you scroll to the bottom!

Also the I386/unattend.txt product key is refused as unauthorized for activation.

Then try this,

  • Use a product key recovery program to find your lost key. An example of such a program is Product Key Explorer

  • 2

    Install the program by double-clicking on the file you just downloaded and going through the installation process.

  • 3

    Open the program when ready and then click "select computer" and make sure it says "Local Computer." Click on the "Find Keys" button.

  • 4

    Locate the program that you installed through your CD-ROM. Next to the product name should be your product key.

    Good luck.
