i know it works on your system disk (C/), it may also give info for the slave disk (D/) as well....
I have recently bought a new PC which came with Windows XP Home installed. My old PC had XP Pro on it which I installed myself from an XP Pro CD which I bought. I have the old hard drive in the new PC as a slave drive. I want to upgrade my XP Home to XP Pro and have 2 difficulties.
Firstly, I know that I should not have XP Pro installed on 2 PC's - it will not be on 2 PC's, but unless I can find a way of removing it from the old hard drive, then I cannot avoid this. I could just delete the entire Windows directory on the old hard drive - I suppose that would do ?
Secondly, I have lost the sleeve to my XP Pro CD and hence the Product Key that went with it. I know it is somewhere - I may just have to spend a few days turning over my study to see if I can find it ! I know that there is a utility out there that can read your Product Key from the registry (JellyBean), but that is no use, as I need to find the Product Key from an old hard drive. Is there anything out there that will tell me my Product key from the previously installed system on my old hard drive ?
If anyone has any suggestions, I would be most grateful. I don't want to get stuck with XP Home just because I am a slob !
