The OEM number is NOT on the CD.  It's too bad you wiped out your HD as it is stored on the hard disk in the registry.  If you have other MS products, try some of the OEM codes from them.  Some will work.

A little trick I've learned is to use all 1's.
It works for most ms programs.

Here's an OEM number .

 compare this to every other number on your CD. If worst comes to worst, just use this number.

There exists a scheme with which you can use almost any serial number you want, and it's legal, provided you do own a license. If you reject the answer I will post and tell you how to obtain oem numbers for *any* Microsoft product perfectly legal.
