Fairly early in the installation of Windows 10, a question pops up regarding the product key. Because at that time I didn't have the product key, I ticked the box saying just that and the installation then proceeded. It was then when the software was running that I got the message to activate Windows.
I don't think that I would have run into this problem if I had known that the product key was on a lable on the bottom of the laptop.
I'm not sure if there is a way around this. I am wondering if one possibility would be to re-install my Windows 7 and then start again. Another thought, is it possible to format the hard drive and get rid of absolutely everything and then start again? Another thought comes to mind, what about if I use my original recovery disks which presumably will get me back to factory settings, and then go from there?
