How Can I get my Windows 7 Key?

So my hard disk is completely destroyed. I bought a New SSD and want to install windows 7 on it. However I don't have my key for windows 7 on the old HDD. Is it possible for me to get a new key by calling Microsoft and giving them the serial code under my laptop? Keep in mind I got this laptop in Europe. Also where can I get a Windows 7 installation CD? Or will I have to buy windows 7 again.

    If you poke around forums.mydigitallife.info, you might find an installation iso you could download. Be sure you download the correct version. I hope that you have a Windows COA sticker on your laptop ... Sometimes they are under the battery, but usually they are clearly attached to the bottom of the machine.

    No, you don't have to buy a new disc. The old one should be still valid. Just call up MS and explain your problem, and ask for a new activation key.
