Hello;

Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!

 

The Windows product key is embedded into the UEFI firmware of your laptop.

 

HP does not keep records of individual product keys associated with individual PCs.  So, HP has no way of providing you the product key.

 

You can download and use this utility to retrieve the product key:  http://www.tenforums.com/software-apps/2577-showkey.html

 

But ... if you try to use that product key to install any Windows version other than the HP OEM version, it will not work.
