Solved How to find XP serial number

May 29, 2008 at 15:36:17
Specs: xp pro sp 2, 2.2 / 1.2 gig

Greetings! I have done a clean install of Windows in the past, but didn't write down the serial number from each individual installation. I have done about six installs in the past, and have six Xp boxes gathering dust! Is there a way to find out which serial was used on which computer? Thanks in advance for your help.

There is a way to find out the serial of windows, ms office and some other software installed on a pc.
The program you need is Belarc.
A small browser based tool that checks whether all Microsoft updates are installed, gives an overview of all installed software, hardware and patches and shows the serial of the installed software.
And the best, it's free !
Here is the link:

The link per has provided to SIW is a more current utility that provides more comprehensive info than Belarc, Aida or Everest.

I don't think the new version of belarc shows the serial numbers. I may be wrong though.

Keyboard not detected. Hit F1 to Continue. BREAKFAST.SYS HALTED Cerial port not Responding!!

How about: Start -> Help & Support -> Tools
-> My Computer Information -> View general information about this computer

Keyfinder works well too.

My suggestion in Response # 6 produces a Product ID (PID) #, but apparently not the Product License Key. The program Keyfinder recommended by Jennifer SUMN does work well.
