Vista COA faded RRS feed

  • Question

  • My harddrive crashed and upgraded to a new one.  Wnet to install vista (from a anytime upgrade disc) and I cant read the COA key on bottom.  I unfortunately did not make recovery disc and have no way of retrieving key.  Any suggestions?  COA is there, just that the numbers are rubbed/worn off.

  • Hello monj,

      Unfortunatly, for lost product keys, the only thing I can do for you is to refer you to the support doc KB811224 "How to identify, locate, and replace a product key http://support.microsoft.com/kb/811224


    Sorry I couldn't be more help,
