I copied and pasted in the cmd but all it says is  Node - HP  ERROR : Description = Invalid query

I managed to find out the product key by a free software but when I type : slui 3 it shows : Error code : 0x8007007B

Error description : the filename, directory name or volume label syntax is incorrect.

Hi,

 

Sorry. Before you launch cmd type cmd then right click on it then click "Run as administrator"
