right click on my computer and go to properties. Wherre it says registered to there should be the product key.
In the future I wouldn't ask questions dealing on this sort of subject in this forum. The Moderators don't look kindly to people asking for CD KEYS and the such

We really do want to know.
I wasn't asking for CD Keys, I have one, just trying to figure out why it doesn't work. I know how to get the info from the register etc... How could a product key from one machine not work in another?
If you are trying to install a retail version OS on a branded machine, no such animal.
Theoran, that is the Product ID number. Product Key is located in the reg. Do a find in the reg for RegisteredOwner(no space) and it will be listed above it.
I've run across the same thing, not every serial number will work with every Windows CD. Seems as if MS set up the CD security so that "this" batch of CD's will work with "this" batch of serial numbers, but won't work with "that" batch of serial numbers. http://discussions.virtualdr.com/For...ML/040825.html
