I bought a laptop many years ago with Windows 7 installed and didn't get an install CD. My hard drive died and half the sticker on the back has been ripped off (I can only read the first dozen characters of the key).
I got the repair guy to install Windows 7 without key.
However, the first thing I did when I originally bought the laptop was make a full backup, which I have just found (7 DVDs).
I don't have another computer to restore the backup to.
Can I find the licence key somewhere on the DVDs?
