Clean install with Windows 7 pro Student Edition.

Hey,
Ok first off I got it a month ago and I havent had time since then to try and install it. I think i was able to do a clean install with it but It asked for a Key which i didnt have. I got a backup disc with It too but It doesnt have a product key on it. Where can I find the product key for the student upgrade? The microsoft store has no history of me buying it for some reason. Another question is that when I did a clean install I remember it made a folder called Old Windows with all my old files in it. When it does this will my games and downloads still be installed and can I move them to their appropriate folders to get them to work? Right now im on a 32 bit vista and uprading to 64 bit 7.

Thanks in advanced
-Matt

Edit: I found The product key it was in an email they sent.
