You won't be able to retrieve the key as neither HP or Microsoft will have any record of this.
However, you can order a replacement set of Recovery Discs using the link below - using these discs to reinstall your operating system will not require you to enter the Product Key.
If you have any problem with this link, order them directly from HP.
If you live in the US, contact HP Here.
If you are in another part of the world, start Here.
