On the Windows support site is stated that to reinstall  Windows later you need te have a windows product code. This code should be attached to the computercase. In my case there is no productcase on the case or on the box etc.

Hi:

 

Starting with PC's that came with W8, Microsoft requires that the PC manufacturers put the Windows product key in the BIOS.

No more product key stickers like there were for W7 and older operating systems.

As long as you install the correct version of W10 that came with your PC (Home, Pro...), you don't need the product key.

Since you just bought the PC, it is probably supported by the HP cloud recovery client utility which you can use to create a bootable USB recovery drive.

Here is an info link for how to use that utility...
