My laptop crashed so hard, it can’t boot up windows. I’m trying to get a clean copy of the installed Windows 10 OS, but I need the product key for the software. I have the BIOS pulled up and it’s not there. Is it on the laptop or box somewhere?

The product key is in the BIOS but you can't read it unless you use special software with Windows installed.
Make a bootable USB W10 installation flash drive using the Microsoft Media Creation Tool at the link below.
You want the 64 bit file.
When you get to the list of the various W10 versions to install, select W10 Home.
You should not need to enter a product key.
After the installation has completed, you can install the drivers and available software from your notebook's support page.
