Hard drive crashed how do I reload windows using the same product ID key

Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

My hard drive crashed and my laptop is out of warranty, I need to reload windows and I know I can extract the Product Key from the computer with the wmic path but I need to load the OS first but do not have a product code to do that with. Is there a place where I can get the image of the software and a teporary ID so that I can get the origional product code out.

Being it is Windows 10, you can download it directly from Microsoft using the MEDIA CREATION TOOL.  You can make the install media from a working computer, scroll down to the "Using the tool to create installation media" and follow the directions.  When it asks for the product key, click on "skip" and when it has completed and you connect to the internet, it will activate itself.
