Is there a way round this?
I think you already know the answer... Without the product key MS Office 2011 will not properly activate. The only way around it is to purchase a licensed copy for yourself. Several web resellers have the Home and Student single install version available for $90 or less. Look around.

However, if you prefer something for free, I recommend LibreOffice version 4.1 which you can download from here. It's compatible with MS Office 2011 and also the Windows version of Office.

Also, another bit of advice: I would not use anything left over from the iMac you purchased but instead would start clean. That of course is up to you.

And... Welcome to the Mac Forums.
