Call your hardware vendor - they are the ones who gave you the disks with the server and they are the only ones who can legally replace them.

No, actually, the images on MSDN are Retail images, not OEM images.

You may be able to look on Ebay then... else, you'll need to buy another set of disks (MAY be able to resell them if you don't use the license key).
