Burying your request inside an old thread.

A little more information than "i don't know" might also help.

Or perhaps you were just making a comment?
Either way, I don't know.

though you posted the most relevant link last. Post it first, so that the OP doesn't have to wade through things s/he is not looking for. Post the others if you want to, but place them after the actual answer.

Operating keys...

When you load on this operating system it will ask for the key(s), and since you do not have it, it will give you a phone number to contact. just phone up the number and ask the person on the other end, they will talk you through it.

Please post back if you have any more problems or questions.

That is not correct

by tintoman In reply to Operating keys...

You do not get the option to telephone for a product key during the installation of windows, you only get that when you try to activate the product, you will not be able to install the software without a product key.
However if you are able to boot to windows now there are several pieces of software which will tell you the key, magic jellybean for one.
