Note the Partial Product Key towards the bottom, match them up from there.

Hey guys, so here is my issue. 

 

I have 3 computers in my house, all started on Windows 7 (have all 3 disks). One is my gaming rig (originally Windows 7, free upgrade to Windows 10), second is my bedroom rig, (originally Windows 7, free upgrade to Windows 10, and I am pretty sure I know what disk this one used casue I labeled it), and my 3rd is my HTPC, which is still running Windows 7, I never did the free upgrade to 10 on it. 

 

I bought new components (motherboard, cpu, ram) for all 3 of them. 

 

My question is, how do I know which of the 2 Windows keys I should use when doing a fresh install on my gaming rig? I know there are programs out there that can locate and decrypt the info from the registry (Magic Jelly Bean?), but I don't know if I can trust those types of programs.

 

Also, if it helps, all 3 disks are OEM Windows 7 Home Premium disks, 2 of which came in a paper folder type thing, while one came in an actual hard traditional CD case. 

 

Any help or direction at all would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

I don't see why it matters?

 

Can't you just install whatever to where ever and stick in the product key?
