…one man's contribution to the Weeeeerly Wild World

Windows 8, Product Keys, and Hiren’s Boot CD

It seems Hiren’s (15.2) Boot CD’s Mini Windows XP doesn’t work with Windows 8 or higher.

I just tried it and it wouldn’t allow me to see the hard drive in Explorer – I’m assuming it doesn’t like the file system.

I can load HD Tune from there and test the drive, but not peep into the file system, to say, run the Windows Key Finder tool (which is just what I needed to do).
