As a last resort to try on whip the slate clean with my computer yesterday I decided to reformat and reinsatall Windows XP (64bit version). In the chaos that is my room I was only able to find my back-up copy of windows at the time but as it was getting so late I started the instalation process ayway. The panic started to set in when an hour later with my room now looking like a war zone in Irak, I stilll had not found my origional disk and product key. I's now the next morning and I am frought!...I NEED this computer for my work - I know I'm an idiot b4 anyone points this out.
Please....is there any way of obtaining the CD key off the CD using another computer? I know you can when it's installed onto your system but that's obviously no use in this case.
I really don't wan't to have to buy another copy of Windows (I did not register it b4 if that makes a difference).
Thanks in advance
