Unfortunately the harddrive in my Satellite A300-1ND has broken down so I bought and installed new harddrive. I tried to install Windows Vista Home Premium (same system as the pre-installed one) but I can't decipher the product key from the laptop botttom side's sticker. Can anyone help me? Or is there any possibility to get new product key from Toshiba?

Best to restore the hard disk to its original out-of-the-box contents using Toshiba recovery media. All of the drivers and utilities will have been installed. Windows is pre-activated; so no product key is required.
See the section Restoring pre-installed software from your created Recovery Discs on p. 3-10 of the User's Manual (attached).
If you failed to burn the discs, order them from Toshiba.

Stumbled across this while looking for information on a torn sticker I have. Have not had any luck with either the vendor or Microsoft themselves. Microsoft just told me to go to the vendor to get it.
Granted, over the years, I have got fairly good at reading these stickers.
XKD82-MTX28 looks like the best bet. The final 8 may be a 3.

I have the same problem
I bought the laptop as brand new in beginning of 2011 and now the product sticker is unreadable. (worn out).
Please help because Windows 7 is running fine but to upgrade to Windows 10 (as per Mircorsofts new free offer), setup wont continue until product key of Windows 7 is entered...!! (so restoring isnt the solution here!)
Please help and assit.
