I had the same problem about a year or two ago. I contacted Microsoft & they tried to get me to purchase the whole pack of XP again, And I finaly got it though to them I just wanted the key.

So I would suggest to contact Microsoft.

Hello mancar,

Since you are reinstalling the OS, you do not need to purchase a new key. If you have a desktop computer, the product key should be on the side of the tower. If you have a laptop it might be on the bottom.
