    Actually it can be done, quite easily too.. not legally of
    course.

    Not to be obvious, but can't you just call MS and get a
    new key?

    If you expect an awnser here your beard will turn white until then. If you
    are using a pirated key and do not know what goes along with it then you
    need to do it legally.
