    Default Windows98 Product key

    I recently reformatted my hard drive and began reinstalling software only to find that i had no record of my windows 98 product key number. My vendor is unable to assist. i registered my software online at purchase time but the woman i talked to at the microsoft helpdesk claims they do not keep a record of product key numbers. Where can i go now to find out my product key or do i have to pay for a new one?

    since win 98 doesn't have any activation procedures it shouldn't be hard to get it up and running.
    Non-system disk or disk error. Replace and strike any key when ready.

    jasondargie,

    Welcome to PressF1!
    Can I ask you start this as a new thread and you actually ask the question yourself, rather than dragging up this one which is nearly 5 years old.
    What's with the massive list of line-breaks?

    Cheers

    johnboy, if he has reformatted, there is no way the programs can recover the key from the HDD.

    That will only work if there is a version of Windows installed, and for which the key has been used. Until it has been used, it does not exist. It cannot be found.

    Try this key code:

    **REMOVED**

    Lost mine some time ago, hope it is correct sequence, it actually brought back my proper key no.
