    recover win7 drive use after install Win10 on 2 drive dual boot sys?


    If this question has been addressed elsewhere, please direct me there.

    I have a duel hard drive, dual boot system. Before upgrading to Win10, I purchased a Samsung 850 EVO SSD drive. I cloned my Win7 HHD drive to the SSD. I then deleted different items on each of the drives based on what I was going to use the drive for. (Games and General Purpose computing) Next, I updated the general purpose HHD to Win10, intending to dual boot Win7 SSD for games.

    After upgrading the HHD drive to Win10, I discovered that the Windows 7 OS installed on my SSD was declared invalid by Microsoft and would not boot. I called Microsoft and was told I needed my win7 install key. I recently moved and cannot find my win7 installation disk.

    I have Belarc installed on both drives. Is there any way to recover the CD key from the windows 7 drive even though it will not boot?
