Hi Naseer_Din,

Do you have the old drive and does it work?

 

If it is still working you can attach the hard drive externally and with a program like Nirsoft Produkey get the key from the drive.

http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/product_cd_key_viewer.html

 

Click on file and select source

Choose load the product keys from externa Software Registry hive and Browse to:

(drive letter): Windows\system32\config\software and click OK

 

Now you should get the product key.

 

Hope it helps,

David
