Hello,
My PC has become unstable and I would like to reload Win98. I have the 98 CD, but I have lost or mislaid the licence number. Is there any way I can find the detrails on my PC?



Regards,



Graham.

MyComputer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\W indows\CurrentVersionProductKey


Look in the registry should be something likethis
or look in system properties??

if you can't boot to windows and haven't formatted the system drive, then boot with a startup floppy or to a command prompt and run either of these:

C:\Windows\command\Find /I "ProductKey" c:\windows\system.dat
C:\Windows\command\Find /I "ProductKey" c:\system.1st
