  • Hello unitd,

    The product key for your Windows XP installation can be found in one of two places:

    1.  If an OEM licensed installation, the product key is printed on the Certificate of Authenticity (CoA) affixed to the computer itself.

    2.  If a retail licensed installation, the product key is printted on the yellow-orange Proof of License label that is affixed to the CD holder folder that was inside thw Windows XP retail package.
