  1. Product key sticker should be on the computer or use magic jellybean finder to find it!
  2. If this app doesn't find the key you are out of luck,because this forum can't help with illegal\pirated software.

    If it is a legitimate system, you could clone it using Acronis True Image or similar. If it isn't, it will get found out as soon as it goes on the Net or downloads a Windows update.
