Windows actually doesn't really care what installation media you use, so long as it's the same version...So, if a friend has installation media, you can borrow it and install using that and your own activation key. Just be prepared to phone Microsoft and let them know you're only running it on one computer.

Normally it would be a sticker on your PC or on some manual. If you purchased a copy legally and just the key ... you could be screwed as the disc itself is worthless and that code is the one worth 100-200$. However, if your PC is still running with the old key, you can use one of the following tools to recover it: http://pcsupport.about.com/od/productkeysactivation/tp/... .
