14 - r205nx: I lost my windows key

My PC was with windows original 10.

I do format, after that I lost windows key.

I'm looking for my old key


With the recent PC, the product key is embedded in the motherboard UEFI firmware and is not printed on a sticker on the PC.

HP keeps no record of individual product associated with individual computers keys, so they are unable to provide you with the key.

You must be able to boot in Windows or WinPE to run a utility to retrieve the key.

You must use this link to create an installation of Win10 media: 10 Windows Installer using the media - Windows help authoring tool

Then, starting in the media.  Once there, you should see if you can download and install this utility to retrieve the key: Showkey - Windows 10 Forums

Good luck
