find microsoft key information for Server 2008

I was handed a production down issue for a server running SBS 2011.  During the original setup someone determined that RAID 0 would be the way to go and configured the server as RAID 0.  Well a drive failed.  The problem as that the original support people had not been doing proper backups.  That situation was not resolved fully and we have a down machine.  I can reinstall the entire thing but I cannot find the keys of course.

I have most of the files including the OS directory, but I do not have the keys.  Is there anyway to recover the keys from the OS even if it is not bootable?  Many people have directed me to key finders but so far they have not worked.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

If you buy by volume you can use https://www.microsoft.com/Licensing/servicecenter/default.aspx.
Or you can call Microsoft support. They will ask you a few questions to help you retrive the key.

I have NOT found a way to extract the key.  The business owner decided to purchase a new license from an OEM builder.

System is now back up.

Thanks for the attempt.
