You can do like I did and call Microsoft directly. I flashed my SSD drive and windows blocked my key. I wound up calling MS explaining to them what happened and told them that I was a student and all that fun stuff, the guy remotely logged onto my computer to check something in the registry and then Sent me a Brand New Key for Windows 7 Ultimate 64, free. There was other crap involved as well, but thats the short story anyway.
