If you have a Microsoft version of Windows, you can call Microsoft.
They can give you a verification code.

If you have an OEM (that is Packard Bell) version of Windows that was
released in 1996 or later, you can try making up a product ID! The
secret is that when you add up all the digits in the second numeric
field, the total must be an even multiple of seven.

Examples:

17177-OEM-1616167-16167
10597-OEM-0021407-56804
30397-OEM-0026382-89293
12697-OEM-0022316-53361
36599-OEM-0009174-29179

1+6+1+6+1+6+7 = 28 which is 4*7
2+1+4+7 = 14, which is 2*7
2+6+3+8+2 = 21, which is 3*7
2+2+3+1+6 = 14, which is 2*7
9+1+7+4 = 21, which is 3*7

I don't have validated ideas about the ID on the original version
of Windows 95. However, you can try three digits and then seven digits
that add to a multiple of seven. For example,

171-1616167
126-0022316
