PC Mover from Laplink can do this. That is what I suggest you try.

Lest it sound trite, please do keep your software. It comes in handy.

Also try Belarc to extract your serial numbers.  That way, if you can find someone with replacement media, you can borrow their disk, but use your serial number.

If you're desperate, most vendors will supply replacement disks (without serial numbers) for a moderate cost - 10-20 USD.  Call them and ask.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.
