Solved!

Windows 10 OEM to SSD

HP Recommended
HP OMEN 870-107 ns
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)
Hey,
Im getting an ssd and i want to install clean Windows 10 on It. So ive seen tutorials showing how to do this, but theres a step which you have to introduce a key, I don't have any key! How i can install Windows without the system key? Also I been reading that Windows OEM is assigned to the motherboard, and the key step will be skipped.
Thanks

Hi:

 

You are correct.

 

Since the W10 product key is in your PC's BIOS when you go to install W10, it will automatically pick up the product key and not prompt you to enter one.

 

It will automatically activate once you are connected to the internet.

 

If you want to know what the W10 product key is, you can use the free utility I zipped up and attached below to print out or save the product key (though you should never need to use it).
