    I think not, as it seems that using MAK key does instantly:

    slmgr -cpky

    Hence no traces of the key in registry

    no it is not possible. Any MAK or KMS keys are encrypted in the registry. What has to happen is someone needs to make a program to parse the pkeyconfig.xrm-ms file.

    Previous versions of Windoze also had the keys encrypted in Registry and it was instant to decrypt....

    Do you know the locatation?
    Is it still DigitalProductId and/or DigitalProductId4?
