    I thought the cd key was the product id so now I have lost the cd key. I purchased it as a download so I am out of luck as the email is gone. I have completely reformated the drive, is there any type of data recovery I can do to recover the cd key?

    You could try contacting Microsoft with your problem. The product id is tied to the serial number so they may be able to help you with the original cd key.
