Hi,
 
The key is in the BIOS of your machine, please use the following tool to get it:

   http://www.belarc.com/free_download.html

When run this tool, it produces a report, scroll down to Software Management section. Windows 8, 8.1 or 10  product key is in there.

You can also use the following tool to find out:

Hi,

 

No, HP does not own Windows product (many editions/versions). It is from Microsoft. But you can order Recovery set/media from HP which contain Windows for YOUR machine. Please read the following article:
