Check this article out on new version. Now I havent tried this out myself but It might be of some use to you!

Magical Jelly Bean Keyfinder v2.0.1

Standard Hooplah

The Magical Jelly Bean Keyfinder is a freeware open source utility that retrieves your Product Key (cd key) used to install Windows from your registry. It allows you to print or save your keys for safekeeping. It works on Windows 95, 98, ME, 2000, XP, Vista, Server 2003, Server 2008, Office XP, Office 2003, and Office 2007 family of products. It also has a community-updated configuration file that retrieves product keys for many other applications. Another feature is the ability to retrieve product keys from unbootable Windows installations.

License Info

  • Open Source - This means that it can be trusted. The Keyfinder does not contain trojans or "phone home" messages. No spam, spyware, viruses, or trojans.
  • Office 2007 & Windows Vista support!
  • An optional config file - this functionality lets you pull a key stored in the registry for any software. A sample config file is included in the zip and can be seen here: keyfinder.cfg
  • Command line options - /save <location> /savecsv <location> /close /hive <location> /file <filename>
  • Load Hive option - allows you to load the registry hive of another Windows installation. To use, put the hard drive in a working machine (must also be Windows 2000,XP or Vista) or use Windows PE (not tested, should work) and click Load Hive. Then point it to the dead Windows install. If you're using Windows Vista, Administrator rights are required for this feature. You may have to right click on the Keyfinder and run as Administrator.
  • Improved Save & Print! - save & print options will now include all keys. Save is also available in text or CSV.

    Yeah the tool is very useful for recovering keys. However. Installing an operating system on a system without the sticker on it (for a client) is technically illegal. We had to be very careful with that at my old job. We usually used the tool if the sticker was half way ripped off but still partially there.
