Correct. If I can boot the machine (without even logging on), I can remotely run a "Reg Query" to find that info too. On the actual machine, I can run the following command:
Quote:
C:\>reg query "hklm\software\microsoft\windows nt\currentversion" /v ProductName | Find "Product"
End result would be something like this:
Quote:
ProductName REG_SZ Windows 7 Enterprise
The trick would be to obtain this info when you cannot even boot up the machine. From Bryce's link, all I get was a web page, was that the tool or is there a downloadable version I missed?

Load the software hive on a system that does boot... do the same reg query with the hive name you assigned it... (or just use D7 ahem)
