Windows 7: Downloaded Win 7 from site, no product key

Downloaded Win 7 from site, no product key

I downloaded Windows 7 from Microsoft's website with the student discount. I downloaded it to a Toshiba laptop which had a Windows 7 Starter version and it was supposed to be an upgrade, but it was giving me error messages so I went ahead and downloaded the whole system from scratch erasing the prior system completely. It asked me for a product key but because I didnt have one I hit X and continued. Now it keeps asking me for a product key, but how can i get one if i didnt download it from a disk, i got it from the site directly??? thanks for the help!!!

I believe that they send out an email showing that you bought it as a student discount and then send out a second one with the cd-key.

To help you rest easier, I concur. It will come email. You can get up to 120 days to activate. If you get near 30 and you do not have your key, yet, we will tell you how to get an extension.
