Old hard drive died and new one replaced, how to get windows activation / key

Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

My 4 year old laptop's hard disk crashed and is totally unrecoverable. I've installed a new hard drive but not sure how to get windows installation setup and license key. My laptop came with an older version of windows and received free upgrade to windows 10 and had been on it for quite a bit. There is no license key sticker anywhere on the laptop.

 

Any help and suggestions appreciated.
