    Download KeyFinder from www.magicaljellybean.com and run that on the computer.  If the drive is not the boot drive anymore attempt to use the load hive feature to recover the key (you will have to use the help feature to figure this out.)  If it can boot the computer then it is simply a matter of running the program and clicking the Office tab.  Download the free one (left column with the red Xs in it.)

    My preference (if the old system can be booted) would be Belarc Advisor - MJB doesn't work for Win 7 unless you get the paid-for version, although it will still (I think) find the Office 2007 Key in a Win7 installation.
