product key code required for installation of os.

Doug Roshto

I seemed to have misplaced the information needed, product
key code, to install 2000 professional operating system
for my computer at my house. I was using a different OS.
which I decided to wipe clean from the hard drive and
install the 2000 professional OS I've had for some time. I
had taken it out of the package and put the disc in a
seperate case but didn't write the product key on the
outside. Now I can't find it and can't load up without
typing it in when prompted during the installation
process. Can anyone tell me how I can obtain a new product
key?

If I understand you correctly, you still have the win2k on another hard
drive. Download and install Belarc Advisor on that system. Belarc Advisor
will give you the Product code that applies to your disk.

Greetings --

The Windows 25-character Product Key (required to perform the
installation) is stored on the CD packaging on a bright orange sticker
that says "Do not lose this number." If it was an OEM (factory
installed) license, it's stored on a label that the PC manufacturer
affixed to the exterior of the PC case, or on the bottom of a laptop.

If it was a retail license and you have proof of purchase:

If it was an OEM license, you should contact whomever sold you the
computer; although very few manufacturers/vendors keep records of the
Product Keys they've sold, it's worth a try before you have to buy a
new license.
