    Before I was using Windows XP Professional with my Macbook through parallels but had some problems with the notebook.

    I have recently received my new mac with Leopard so i can use Bootcamp! Unfortunately I've just realised that the cd sleeve with the Serial number has been trashed so I have the cd yet no serial.

    Is there anyway of getting it back?

    Do you still windows installed?

    If so...

    Download this

    Don't worry about spyware or viruses. A friend of mine wrote the software and thats his website.

    No, thats the problem.

    Its a completely new mac so I can't use apps like that to retrive the code.

    Did you register with M$? if so then a call to them may yield some help. If not then you are screwed :( the key isnt on the disk and without access to a working windows drive (with your key on it) you won't be able to find it - sorry
