I have taken the hard drive out of a netbook and I have connected it to my main pc in order to find the cd key so that I can reinstall w7 on it. I have downloaded magical jelly beans key finder and used the hive to view the drive. It tells me I do not have the permissions necessary to do this. Can anyone either tell me how to overcome this or point to another free key finder prog. Thanks in advance.
the netbook does not have a cd key sticker on it nor does it even have a manufacturers name but it is well specked 2GB ram 320GB disk web cam. When you try and start it attempts to start w7 ultimate it eventually ends with a bsod and memory dump. I have tried produkey but it does not show it and says that w7 can give it problems. I cannot back it up as I cannot get it to run. I would like to be able to edit msconfig on the drive while connected to mine but do not know how to do this.
