I formatted my older computer's hard drive,for the kids to use, and reinstalled windows 98 SE. Everything went fine, but I cannot find my product key numbers on the paperwork that originally came with the CD. Everytime I turn it on, it ask's for "user information" (i.e. name, company name) then liscense aggrement, then windows product key numbers. I reinstalled it already, and so its not on any other computer to pull the product key off of. Is there any way to get the product key from just the Windows 98 SE disc? Or can anyone help with clearing out the hard drive, without window's 98 being Completetly installed?
I know there are ways to get the product key from computers that are up and running...but in this case that is not do-able. I think (but am not positive) that "doing" something with the jumpers on the hard drive may possibly clear the hard drive so I could try again with another CD, but not sure where to begin.
Not to brite.
