This question already has an answer here:
Long story short my computer wont boot and since I don't feel like having it repaired I'm just going to do a clean install from an install USB. I having a laptop know the implications of having to reinstall important drivers. My question is how does one get a license key from a non booting computer? I cant boot into my windows installation and can only boot into the install USB, The product key isn't in a folder because it's a laptop, The product key isn't on a sticker on the bottom of my pc, I checked... twice, and the box and any documentation that came with my computer is sitting inside my attic where it will sit LOST FOR A VERY LONG TIME. Is there a file where the product key is installed? Can my computers creator help me? I can't have a non genuine windows installation.
Thanks for your help, -r
