    Default Windows XP serial number

    Hi all, i cant find my xp serial number. Does anyone know what it comes on when you buy it. It's not on the case that the cd is in or the booklet it came with. Any ideas?.
    Cheers

    Usually on a sticker stuck to the side of your computer somewhere.

    If you ever lose the sticker, here's a little program that will extract the serial from the registry

    It is also a good idea to write with a suitable marker pen the product key number on the actual Windows install CD as well.

    True ... having those ink marks all over the shiny silver side of the CD would make it look ugly






    Disclaimer: OK, I was just joking ... you don't ever write on the shiny side of the CD
