Any chance there is a sticker on the box or maybe a card with the key in the paperwork that came with it?

It is possible that if you changed enough parts that the OEM would not activate.

This is the XP forum. You listed Vista as your OS. I'll assume you're asking about XP.

You can't install XP without a product key so you must have either entered it during the installation, or it's built in to the repair disc. Since you mentioned a 30 day limit, you're probably asking about activation. If your installation is legal, all you need to do is activate online. If it's illegal, do a google search for "make xp 100% genuine".
