    If it was an upgrade, you can use Showkey plus:

    Are you wanting the Windows 8 key or Windows 10 key? If you did the free upgrade, that PC now has a digital entitlement. You just install that same version of Windows 10 and click skip when asked for a key. It will activate with the digital entitlement. The key that goes with the digital entitlement is a generic key. There is one for Pro, one for Home, one for SL etc. You don't really need it.

    If that PC shipped from the factory with Windows 8 or 8.1 on it, that key is embedded in the BIOS. Windows 8.1 install media will read it and use it automatically, assuming you use the correct install media. showkey should show you your embedded key and what version of Windows 8 or 8.1 its for.
