You need a valid product key.
Since you formatted the hard drive, it is not possible to recover the key from the old registry.

If you have clear proof of purchase, you can try contacting Microsoft and requesting a new product key.

Alternately, you can use a product key from a different W98 Cd that is from the same distribution.

If you got Windows on the machine when you bought it(say from Dell or Gateway), you can call them get the key - they keep it on record.

good luck!
