The product key is not on the disk in any way, shape or form, it would be with the original packaging. Contact the person who sold you this.

Check and see what kind of licensing the disk is for. You probably don't have the appropriate disk for that key or an erroneous key altogether.

Check out the licensing section of this Wikipedia article: http://en.wikipedia....and_media_types

Hope this helps
