No - not possible I am sorry to say. You have to enter the serial number when installing from the CD.

The serial key.. is part of the hologram label on the manual.

The CD's are all generic/identical. The CD key would have possibly been on a sticker attached to the CD case or printed on a Microsoft OEM piece of card. Sorry :0(

if i could help i would but if you post a thread on here for info about loading one os onto another pc as i think you are trying to do (laptop to pc with no os)you will get all sorts of complaints about being a thief or a rapist (the best yet,or is that worse)so to save being told off and thought of as a criminal i would advise a rethink of your question.

Windows 98se was recently being sold for about £70, but it's getting difficult to find now. You may find it, or a license for it (which will have the number on it) at a computer fair.

You can get a full version of Win98SE with licence for £70 from here click here
