  • Your Product Key should be on a COA sticker on the machine's case- or inside the battery compartment.

    If you cannot find a COA sticker, then it's likely that you don't have a Windows License.

    If you don't Activate Windows then the machine will drop into a non-genuine state, and you'll be locked out of certain functionality, although mostly the machine will continue to run as normal. You will also get persistent 'nag' screens and warnings at boot time.
