Windows 8 Pro Media Center recover key

I got windows media center add-on last year when it was free on all my pro computers. I recently needed to reinstall windows on my HTPC. I don't remember getting a email with the Media Center Key. I had enough sense to use a key tool to pull the windows key off the computer before I reinstalled, but alas the key does not work. how do I get the Key or will I need to repurchase the key?



What happens when you try to reactivate by telephone?


1. Press Windows key + X then clickRun, then type: slui.exe 4

2. Next press the 'ENTER' key

3. Select your 'Country' from the list.

4. Choose the 'Phone Activation' option.

5. Stay on the phone (do not select/press any options) and wait for a person to help you with activation.

6. Explain your problem clearly to the support person.
