    There is no Product Key that begins 00 – or even one that has any ‘0’s in it at all.
    You’re looking a the Product ID, not the Product Key
     
    The Product Key is on your COA sticker on the machine’s case.
     
    Having said that, normally, manufacturer’s Recovery disks (which is what you would have received) do not require the input of a Key.
    How is the disk labelled?
    For what version and edition of Windows is your machine licensed, according to the COA sticker on the machine?
