Old product key

I came across my original Windows xp SP2 reinstall disc for a laptop I purchased and registered. I also have that laptop (Dell 1560), however no Windows key sticker. How may I get this key?

Thanks!

RE: Old product key

Windows XP reached its End of Life (~3 years ago). However the Dell Windows XP Reinstallation CD will install using a generic OEM System Locked Preinstallation key which will activate offline providing the system possesses a System License Internal Code of version 1.0 or superior.
