XP: Get a new XP Key

Posted by cascadehush on October 20, 2006

Here is an insider secret. It is possible to get a new Windows key if your sticker is lost or damaged.

You have to call Microsoft on the technical support number for your country. You have to convince them that you have a legitimate copy of Windows. They may ask for a partial key or some details from your Windows CD. I know 2 people who have pulled this off successfully.

So if you have an old PC that dies and you can’t re-load it because the key is missing, there is hope.
