    Hi all,

    i have a quick question...
    i work at a company, and they updated to windows enterprise 7 64 bits edition on all computers and thinclients.
    but i can't access the system disk nor can i use pkeyui.exe (which is found on this forum). I think they locked this.

    How can i still get that key, are there any workarounds? Or are there no workarounds :unsure:

    TiA!

    What i tried so far:
    -boot from liveCD via USB and CD = can't .. bios locked down for bootmenu. LOL! :rolleyes:
    -run pkeyui.exe inside windows 7, reads: BBBB-BBBB-BBB etc. so not working either.
    -run other getkey programs (like jellybean), not working either!

    plus i get an activation ID, app ID, extende PID, install ID.

    Most probably its MAK activated & so you can't retrieve the key from registry.

    That is what MAK was invented for. No key for ScarySpons ;)
