Want to know my genuine Product Key


This is Atharv. I had bought a Dell Laptop which was preinstalled with windows 8. Recently I have to change my HDD, so, I sent it to a repair store. The man in the store installed a pirated windows 10 on the new hard drive and activated using a pirated product key. Now, I want to know my genuine Product Key so that I can install a genuine windows. Please help me in this matter.


Can you please tell me how I can get my original genuine product key? Or suggest some methods to install genuine windows again on my laptop.

You can do a clean install of Windows 10 but might have to buy a new license activation key -- not a product key.

Couldn't I retrieve my original license which I got during purchase? Please help.


Possibly but @Mary G may be spot on. This MS forum has some information on retrieving the key but if it does not work then you may have to purchase another key again and clean install.
