Hi,

To reinstall Windows 10 you do not need product key. If win 10 was already installed on the computer once it will automatically activate once installed and connected to internet. During installation when asked for product key just click on "Do not have one".

 

Hope it helps,

David

No, you do not need product key for OS installer.

When asked for product key just click on DO NOT HAVE ONE. Windows 10 will automatically be activated once installed (you need to install same edition).

 

If you want an original copy of Windows 10 you can get one from Microsoft by downloading the media creation tool and running to create a bootable USB drive with Windows 10.

Hope it helps,

David
