Windows 7 product key - can't find, but have proof of purchase RRS feed

  • Question

  • I bought Windows 7 a few months ago from the Microsoft store (I think). Everything was grand, great OS, love it all.

    Recently had to re-format and re-install. Went on the Microsoft store website, can't find my product in my account.

    I'm sure you get a million punts a day at free product keys; but when I bought the digital download I also bought a hard-disk copy. With this came a sticker, with barcodes and a ton of other strange numbers on; but no product key. I'm just wondering... is this enough to get any help recovering my key?

    Otherwise it's back to Windows 98!
