activating windows 7 product key

in january i got a free windows 7 starter disk in the mail. last month i upgraded to windows 7 ultimate for like 100 bucks at the store. last week i had did a whole reformat thing to my computer cause it was acting up really bad and when i restarted the computer as windows 7 ultimate it asked for me to put in my product key again that i got from the store. i tried that and it wouldn't work. and the computer says i still have 22 days left to activate windows 7. any ideas? i tried the free starter product key as well ... no luck. and i no longer have the free windows starter disk either or product key for windows ultimate cause i accidentally shipped them in the mail with household goods back to the states, where im being stationed next. im in the army
