I've recently created an account to seek help from professionals after all the time spent on http:\\google.com searching for a solution for a special problem, which I of course haven't found yet.
I once brought an HP G60 laptop from Germany as a present for my cousin in Egypt and I was very happy to had brought him a laptop with at least an "original" Windows Vista Operating System, because in Egypt almost all windows operating systems are cracked versions, although the laptops were being bought from factories!!
By the time the system failed booting and he took the laptop to somebody with recovery knowledge in order to restore the laptop to the original state.
Of course again, aware people in Egypt handle other unknowing people with fraud by taking the original serial of the vista and installing windows 7 with the excuse it would be a better system. Now I've visited my cousin and have found out that this person had deleted all recovery partitions leaving only empty HDD's including the windows 7 operating system. I then downloaded the G60 recovery disc in order to restore the operating system and found out that the serial key beneath the laptop had been polished by frequent use.
Now to my question: Is it possible to restore the serial key after the original recovery data had been completely overwritten(maybe in hidden folders or hidden registry)?
Thanks to any answers!
