Uh, usually on the book or packaging that you (he) got your (his) copy of xp with

Are you trying to pull the current key off your computer? Unless you have a Volume License copy (which you _probably_ don't/shouldn't), you wouldn't want to use it...

Not the key, there should be a number on the cd itself, around the inner ring maybe?

Not the cd-key, theres usually a code on the cd itself. They can look the code up and see what your cd key is. Thats how it is with a lot of microsft products.Jesus man, read my posts carefully instead of telling me that the cd key is not on the cd, i know that.

OK Guys, kiss and make up.

As far as I know the only way to install XP even if you have the original disc is to get it off the COA sticker which is MIA. Now, if the copy was registered then you could try and call Microsoft and see what they say. Now, if the OS has already been installed on the PC then you can download ViewKeyXP to see what it is. Google it...

Hope this helps

Third i would like you to find me reliable proof that a cd key is indeed imbedded into that disk somewhere and where not taking sides here people dont defend others when you have no backing.
He clearly said it wasnt the CD Key itself. But a code on it that Microsoft can tell you the CD key then if you call them. I dont know if its true or not...

Yes ring microsoft up and tell them your disk number which should be on your disk.
