    I got a Toshiba A305 laptop.. I installed a clean retail copy of vista "anytime upgrade disk" but theres no product key as its worn off so it wont validate...

    How do I either convert this installed copy to a oem that will validate if thats posible or create a automated install oem disk.

    Im not sure if there would be a oem certificate to extract since this is a retail copy....

    Im very new to this so can you make it easy to understand or maybe a tutorial video exist.. thanks in advance

    Do i extract the oem certifcate from the bios? idk....
