Our SBS2008 is for some reason installed as a VM on a hyper-V server, total overkill for what we need.

I'm looking at the feasibility of re-installing the OS from scratch on to slightly better spec'd hardware.

We don't have the MS license info for the OS or CAL's, no install discs are available, and the I.T company who set the original server up are no longer in existence, their invoice doesn't mention anything about the license info - There is a sticker with key on the box but the refers to Server 2008 which hosts the VHD/SBS.

What I was wondering is if there is any way to extract the information from the current install - and even if we can do this where can we get a setup image or discs?
