If In understand you correctly, you REPLACED Windows with Linux, right? So, the problem you are going to face is that Windows product key utilities only run in Windows, so you can not use them in Linux to retrieve your product key.
That said, since your PC originally came with Windows preinstalled, it should already be registered with MS running Win10; so, if you reinstall Win10, when you later connect to the Internet, it will contact the MS Activation servers and you should then be reactivated without problems. So, basically, you won't then need your Windows product key.
