    to find my windows cd key from startup? I'm kinda fucked here since my windows crashed, and I need to backup some important stuff on my pc.

    I went to install a copy of windows over top of the last one just so I could go in and back my stuff up, then format and reinstall a fresh copy of windows afterwards.

    No when it's asking me for my CD key, I don't have my original one and I tried to use a couple I found on the net but no luck at all, they don't work. Is there any possible way to get into the registry or find my orig CD key without being in Windows itself?

    I do have an original CD but I didn't buy it from a store the computer was custom built so I am kind of stuck there.

    :wtc::noes::x: sums it up.

    Far as I can get is in the setup where it asks for the key unfortunately I was thinking about the HD as a slave to get my stuff, but I'd need to bring it to a shop since I only have my laptop besides said PC.

    yep .. I got one to read some HD's I had on a PC that the mobo crashed.
    it has USB ... AC adapter for power .. reads like any other USB drive.

    I think this is the one I bought http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817193025

    wait... if you have gotten that far in the reinstall, haven't you already wiped out your hard drive? if that is the case, you probably have nothing left on that drive to find your key off of.

    so you do not legally own a copy? Buy it.

    Stop stealing software.

    You're a fucking idiot, read better.

    Anyways, I ended up getting a HD enclosure, so I should be ok now, it shouldn't have deleted anything since I didn't format, I just was installing windows over.

    Thanks

    You're a fucking idiot. NO WHERE do you say you paid for a LEGIT windows license. In fact, you admit to trying to pirate it!

    No CoA == No Legit.


    Even if you do pull the CD Key out of the old install it is STILL NOT LEGAL UNTIL YOU PHYSICALLY POSES A *VALID* CoA!

    haha holy fuck i said clearly in the first post i have the original cd but not the key. I bought the computer from a guy that built it for me, and I paid for windows which was included, hence having the original cd. That is why you are a fucking idiot and need to read better. so read better you fucking idiot.

    Hey idiot, having the CD does NOT make it a legit license. Not having the CoA makes it an ILLEGAL copy. So I'm not the one that needs to read better. By your own admission YOU DO NOT OWN A COPY OF WINDOWS.

    The CD doesn't mean shit. Microsoft will sell those for the cost of the press, which is like $5. The CoA is the license. I can have a CoA and no CD and it is still a LEGIT license. You have a CD with no CoA and you do NOT have a legal license.


    So for the last fucking time, you're an idiot and you DO NOT HAVE ANY RIGHTS TO RUN WINDOWS... EVEN IF YOU RECOVER THE OLD CD KEY.

    YOU MUST PURCHASE A VALID CoA BEFORE YOU CAN BE CONSIDERED ANYTHING OTHER THAN A FAGGOT THIEF.

    You don't have a CoA. You do not have a legit windows license. You do not have permission to use Windows on that machine.

    YOU ARE A FUCKING THIEF.

    Then why do you blatantly break the law and steal?

    I have never met someone so fucking ignorant in real life. At least thieves usually admit what they do is wrong. :nono:

    If you pay for illegal software you have NO right to get pissy when it doesn't work.

    And at this point, with you not having any CoAs then I have all the evidence to call you a thief. The faggot part is just because you think that you're "owed" something. You're not.

    what the fuck is wrong with you? shut the fuck up already. i swear, sometimes it just seems like you are looking for an excuse to act like a prick.


    ozzie, if the data is that important, you might want to buy another hard drive and just install vista over there and then leave this drive as a second one once you get off what you need. if that isn't an option, have you tried repairing your windows install instead of doing a whole reinstall?

    Yep buddy's fucked.

    Anyhoo yeah, I actually have 2 HD's in the computer now, another option would be installing windows on the second drive, but I also have stuff I need to grab off it too so I think this way is best with the HD Enclosure and I just bought an External drive as well so I'll just the one main in the PC and have a couple of backup drives for when I need them (I stole all those parts out of a truck to actually by the way:rolleyes:)
