Howto read your Windows OS OEM key from UEFI

#1 Post by CornHolio the Gringo » Tue Jul 17, 2018 10:31 am

Situation:
A friend of mine has given Me his old notebook-pc and securely
deleted the harddisk content.
I want to install Windows 10 for testing, but I dont have a valid key.
The notebook has UEFI, and I can extract the old Windows 8.1 OEM key by using
RWEverything (http://rweverything.com).

Lauch the program, choose ACPI Tables, then MSDM, and the embedded
key is visible.

RWEverything is portable, and is the only tool Ive found that does
the job.

Yes Midas, I saw that tread, but I had to make a new, to make RWEverything more interressting to the one who needed what I layed out.
