    Serial Number

    I'd like to find the serial number for the W98 installed on my machine. I would like to use my W98 CD to upgrade a machine running W95, but have missplaced the installation CD code. Where in the machine can I find it? Is it needed?

    Hi Andy

    I think <post#=428618>post 428618</post#> might just hold the "key" <img src=/S/pun.gif border=0 alt=pun width=22 height=18> to what you need.

    You done good Alan, just the thing I wanted. Now...

    Is there a way to find the Serial Number of the W98 CD? I'm trying to match the CD with the machine it's running on.

    I don't think Windows98 CDs have individual serial numbers, they are all identical, except possibly if there is a sticker with the serial number printed on the CD case.

    The first thing I'd try is the key you found on your machine. Usually (AFAIK) the CD is not actually "branded" with a key, but the numbers have to match a legitimate "pattern" to be considered valid. Try it and see.
