    That happens quit often. I've seen many posts where that person bought a cheap key off of E-bay and wondered why it didn't activate correctly. Either way, it looks like your buying another Pro License to get Pro on that PC. Remote Desktop is why I run Pro of higher.
    But I think you were right about the 2 key thingy that installed one is same for all and original one is different. I checked using the software you suggested and it showed 2 keys on my new PC. The one installed I searched in Google and found its results but when I searched for the original key, there wasn't any result. Can Microsoft find my original key from my Product ID or something?

    I don't think so, not now. If the other PC was still running the original install where that key was entered, Yes, you could find the key. Once you reinstall Windows, and skip entering a key though, its not there to be found. The current Product ID will I think be based on the generic key. @Superfly knows more about that product ID stuff than I do.

    Yep, the PID is key specific.
