I suppose this problem has been covered over and over, but here goes:
I have an older machine that had Win 98 on it but bombed out. After many hours trying to get Windows to run, and since I had the original CD, I went ahead and formatted the HD. Now, in the process of re-installing 98 the demand for the product key faces me. I do not have it anymore. What to do . . . I got it to work in safe mode and was able to get to the registry and I entered a fictious number in the proper register line. Did the install over again and it will not accept the key number. Does anyone have any suggestions? Will I have to dig up my old installation disk for Win 95 and settle for that beast?
Thanks for any help,
