You will need to purchase an authentic copy of Windows. All other avenues are not legal. You can then use the product key to activate your copy of Windows. When activating, use the telephone option to call Microsoft. They can help you if the copy of Windows you purchase isn't the same as the one you have installed. OEM vs. Retail, etc.

Good luck.
