That is the question, and was why I was hoping that ShowKeyPlus may work better when Craig gets it sorted with you.

Its ok Shawn sorry late reply mate been organising the trip to the UK.

Well I found looking through the report that some drivers were missing and I fixed up as many as i could find and now the Showkey works - but only when it is first booted once closed I have to reboot the machine to get it back so no big deal as I don't have to refer to it that much eh?

Sorry late reply mate yes I think it is the right one as it definitely is the same as MJB and Belarc. I did try harassing the sellers for the key they put on it and they haven't got back to me yet but I am sure it is ok because I have installed 7 using it and it shows genuine.

Yes pretty sure and might have to find out soon as I changed the broadband modem at home last night and it has thrown this machine into a bit of a tizz so might have to reinstall unless things settle down.

How to find OEM key for PC donation

Hello, my company is looking to donate several PCs (Dell Optiplex 9020) with Windows 7 Pro 64 bit loaded. My problem is I can't figure out which product key these PCs should have once they go out. Should it be the original OEM product key? some of them have the COA sticker and some don't. For the PCs missing the COA sticker, how do I pull the OEM key from the PC? My company uses a volume key license, but they do not want to donate these PCs with that key activated on them.

Hello musicmanrocks, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You would need to know the product key number on the COA sticker.

The OEM SLP key is just what the manufacturer used to activate with, but an individual wouldn't be able to activate with a clean install with it. An OEM SLP key will only work to activate with OEM recovery media.

If it's a retail OEM key, then that could be used to activate Windows 7 from a clean install on the PC though.

I find that Option 2 works best to see the key.
