    Hi,

    It's encrypted in the registry, not easily readable. Use one of these to
    extract it:

    This utility works for retail versions:
    www.webtree.ca/windowsxp/ViewKeyXP.exe

    or try this one which just gives you the key for any version:
    www.magicaljellybean.com/keyfinder.shtml

    Also, these system utilities will get it for you:

    Everest Home Edition:
    www.lavalys.com
    Belarc Advisor:
    www.belarc.com

    Look at the computer. Manufacturers generally place the serial number
    on the back or bottom of the case, although some place a label on the
    side, as well.

    Seeing as the hard drive is just one of the many components insiude
    thae computer's case, and probably has it's own serial number, no.
