Is there anyway to recover a lost Windows 7 key obtained from Dreamspark (aka MSDNAA). I originally got the key from my university, but I am no longer a student so I do not have access to the website anymore.
All I have is a genuine copy of Windows 7 loaded with the Dreamspark key. I wish to reformat my disk, however I cannot install windows without the key.
I have tried several free software to retrieve the key from the registry. However, the key shows up as a generic key (all B's). From my understanding, this is because Dreamspark/MSDNAA keys are handled differently than other retail keys.
What are my options at this point?
