Its usually found on the second half of the hard drive in either hidden boot form or normal.

even if you download the OS DVD you may find it work because the key is specific to a particular type of DVD. You should have a secondary partition on the drive where the oem backup is. If not you could always ask M$haft for a copy by quoting your key and explaining the position. Failing that contact the supplier of the PC.:thumbsup:

As long as you match the type of license it should be fine which in your case means it needs to be an OEM CD rather than a retail CD.
