There is no way to retrieve the key on your COA label, neither Microsoft or HP will have any record of this.
However, the Recovery Discs you ordered from HP will not require this as the volume license key is embedded in the OS and Windows should automatically activate when these discs are used.
If this is not the case and the OS does not activate, you should contact HP.
If you live in the US, contact HP Here.
If you are in another part of the world, start Here.
