Customer Question

I had the CS2 Adobe Suite in 10/4/2006. Then I bought the upgrade version of Adobe Creative Suite 3 Design Premium and installed it a few years later. Then my hard drive crashed and I replaced the hard drive in 2011. When I tried to install the CS3 and activate it I was asked for the serial number of the CS2 product (the only qualifying Adobe product I had) - however I had lost the SN and in my notes I say that the licenses were destroyed. How can I proceed further and activate it?
Fast forward - now I want to activate the CS3 product. I have searched everywhere for any reference to the CS2 SN and can't find it. (As a side note - I have CS6 for my MAC system, but I know it doesn't count.)
