    Where did you buy it from? Is it an OEM or Retail pack?
    If from the MS Store, they may have records of the purchase and Key. Otherwise you will have to buy another copy, unless you can find the Key
    If your install is still functional, you can retrieve the Key using Belarc Advisor (www.belarc.com)
    If the install is not functional, but still present, then you may be able to retrieve the Key using UBCD4Windows or a BartPE disk
    If you've formatted or otherwise destroyed the HD, then you are out of luck, and will have to buy a new copy, although you could try the procedures here....
