COA question

My windows 98 operating system is screwed. Is there any way i can get the license agreement/ COA code of the hard drive. Its been a long while since i needed the manual and i have misplaced it. I'm looking to format the drive and start from scratch.

Thanks

matt

You want to install a new operating system on your computer. Correct? :sayyes:
What type computer do you have? Dell or ?

Can you boot at all? If so:

Go to Start->Run and type in REGEDIT then press Enter.

Navigate to HKEY_Local_Machine\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Current Version (highlight this one). In the left pane, scroll down and you'll see ProductID and the 5-group CD Key.

used chevy's suggestion and got the code via regedit.

i have one more issue and thats restarting in ms-dos mode. Basically the system will not shut down or restart. is there any way i can switch to ms dos mode on startup? bearing in mind that every time i turn it on it goes into a scan because it was'nt shut down properly

Thanks for your time
