Windows 7 Product Key - where is it stored?

For some months I have been trying to load Windows 7 SP1 on my Dell Studio laptop - without any success. A moderator on the Microsoft Answers form has advised me (as a last resort) to perform a 'Repair Install' using the original Win 7 CD. The Dell Studio isn't supplied with one - just a 'Recovery' partition.
However, I do have the Windows 7 CD for my Eclipse PC. Hopefully I can use this, but I will need the Product Key for the Dell Studio installation, if I can locate it on the Dell Studio before I start the Repair Installation.
How do I find it? (i.e. Where is it stored?)

trying to install SP1 for W7 ERROR NOT FOUND (0x80070490)
I found this solution by 'Ben-IS' dated Friday, April 15, 2011 2:05 AM (if you can get your head around it...)
or maybe you could try the repair install with a DVD of W7 that already has SP1 on, you can get the .iso from Microsoft official Download Digital River. Heidoc has page full of info and direct download links. Get the Service Pack 1 Media Refresh (SP1 U) for your version (English USA in the second block)
