    OEM Product Key - Tool Available To Reveal It


    Newer PCs and laptops shipping with Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 10 no longer come with a Certificate of Authenticity attached to the back or bottom of the PC. Instead, PC manufacturers have worked with Microsoft to embed the product key directly into the BIOS or EFI.
    If you need to retrieve the OEM-embedded product key from your PC, you can use this OEM product key utility to extract and show the product key programmed into your PC. Absolutely no user interaction is required, you just run the download and it immediately displays the detected product key. This product key can be used to reinstall Windows 10 and Windows 8 with a clean Windows setup CD to remove bloatware installed by the manufacturer, or to reinstall Windows after a crash or system failure.

    I havn't tried that one, but have a look at Belarq. Finds all the software keys on your computer, including the OEM, and a very comprehensive list of your hardware etc.

    The new NeoSmart tool won't access the data or the lack thereof on this beta.

    I have not used any of these utilities, so it's only a matter of curiosity on my part.

    Superfly's older script 'ShowKey' works, this new one doesn't.

    Please correct me if I am wrong. You might be able to install windows but from my understanding you can't activate if doing a clean install unless you have one of those re-installation disk from the manufacture that includes pre-activation.
