Office Key off Old Hard Drive

By bakerkitty ·
Is there any way to find my Office 2007 product key off my old hard drives? My motherboard crashed and I had to get a new PC but my two hard drives from the old system still contain all the program files I had. I've got a trial version installed now, but need that product key. I've tried contacting Microsoft but I apparently don't know the secret handshake to get to the right person. Anyone out there, who can hear me?? HELP!!

...take the old HDDs and instal them into the new box. Doesnt matter if you have windows already on them. The MBR will just find your current windows install and start it up. Then when you get into windows, just launch office from the old hdd.

That way you have all your old files and your old office too!

Go to and install the advisor program.

In the report it creates you will find the license key that you're looking for.

Hi - just wondering if you'd managed to get key for Office and use on new computer as I'm in exactly the same situation.

Funny Adobe we awesome with this and got Photoshop set up on my new laptop in 5 mins. Mircosoft = rubbish.
