    Hey all!

    I have a problem.

    I just purchased a whole lot of hardware, and my upgrade will almost certainly require a windows reinstall...


    Enter the problem:

    I've lost my Win XP disk.

    I could reinstall win XP with a buddies disc, but I dont know what my key is.

    Is there any way I can extract my CD key from my computer, so that I can use it in my reinstall?

    Thanks,
    Matt
