I'm doing a hard drive upgrade and it might ask me for the product key again. How can I find it?
Either the sticker that came with your machine and/or on the media case.
You can also try Magic Jelly Bean Keyfinder for a software way.
Product Key Finder is a free tool that will display the installed Windows Product Key and other important Windows system information. Product Key Finder works with the following Windows operating systems (2000, 2003, XP, Vista, 2008, 7), 32-bit and 64-bit.

You may also want to backup your Windows activation files:
Download, install, run it, then it opens a page in your web browser displaying all kinds of facts and statistics about your PC...near the bottom, it has all the product keys, etc for all the install software, and, of course, the operating system...Hope that helps!
