windows product key

Probook 450 G2
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

I recently bought a Probook 450 G2.  I need the product key for my installation of Windows 7 Pro (aquired, aparantly, through the downgrade rights from Windows 8.1 Pro).

 

I do not need instructions on using the 'included recovery media' or on creating said media.

I do not need to be told to use the 'restore manager' at any time to recover my machine.

Nor do I need to be told the CD Key is 'in the bios' and that I will never need it.

 

 

I need the actual product key.

Hello @ssantana3430

 

Welcome to the HP Support forum.

 

You will not find your product key on a sticker attached to the BIOS (if the PC runs Windows 8/8.1/10). As per Microsoft requirement, they are bundled into BIOS. More info > https://www.cnet.com/news/windows-8-moves-to-bios-based-product-keys/

 

In order to help you solve your issue you need to provide as many details as possible:

- Why do you need to reactivate Windows ? Did you reinstall Windows ? If yes, how ?

- Did you perform some hardware change or update?

- What is your HP product model and product number > http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c00033108   ?

 

 

Looking forward to your reply
