    Why don't you try to call them? What's the worse they could do, say no?

    Or you could take the inquiry number and feed it into this if possible (since it's < 7.0)

    If you can"t get it after all with the mkey generator, you"ll need to contact Nintendo only don"t tell them that is a demo console., you can also ty the Parental Control PIN Reset tool of Nintendo that costs $0.50 but I don"t know if it will work to your Firmware (that"s curiosly since I never seen a 2.1.7-X only 2.1.0-X) and I don"t think there"s one for Europe, so you should call or send an email to Nintendo Support.

    Did you atleast make a backup of the 2.1 nand before you did much? would be interesting to see if it had any deleted titles on it.

    Yes, it will be interesting to see at it and also even 2.1.7-0E weren"t launched in CDN so it will be interesting and adding that it is a Demo Unit it"s possible that it maybe had more things in it.
