    hello everyone.

    ok so i am the repair guy everyone talks to.

    someone gave me a laptop and says they got a virus.
    (doesn't really matter)

    i boot the system and it loads just right up to the users log in and
    reboots

    ok that's not a big deal to fix.

    system restore -didn't work tried 3 times
    system recover from hidden participation -didn't work
    safe mode -didn't work
    last good config -didn't work
    (not necessarily the order i tryed everything.)

    ok i am getting pissed here
    i have a DELL Vista cd with me.
    at this point in time i would be surprised if anyone that reads this
    doesn't have one.

    now i would love to reinstall vista and say **** it all to the
    personal files.

    there is no COA sticker.
    i call dell
    they say try calling the eruo support.

    anyway they didn't tell me anything.

    i need to lift the cd key from this laptop without the COA
    what can i do?
    remember there is no boot

    file system is intact and i can probably get into the registry.
    not sure where and what to look for after that.

    thanks.
