I work in a PC repair shop and we use ubuntu and knoppix boot disks for various service jobs. One very annoying situation is when the customer needs us to reinstall windows but has lost his license sticker. In this case we have to follow a very laborious process of removing the hard drive from the system, installing it in a local box, and running a poorly designed application that opens the registry hive.
Is there any way to duplicate this process on a livecd? This would be much simpler. Thanks for any advice.
