It should be stuck on the PC case somewhere on a holographic label.

It should be on a sticker attached to the side of your box. If not telephone 0870 60 10 100 and explain what has happened,assuming its a retail version. If OEM (supplied with the pc) then you will have to contact the pc vendor.

I'm a bit confused though. You have to enter the key at a point prior to XP being fully installed, it's a 20 digit number. You do not need a key to activate if done over the internet. If you have got to a point where XP is fully installed then I do not think you have a problem.
