    If you can boot the old machine, then ShowKeyPlus can read the OEM key from its firmware. An OEM Window 8/8.1 key should activate Windows 10.
    By 'old machine' are you referring to the old pc whose OS is corrupted and gives me the BSOD OR are you referring to the old laptop that I mentioned has no sticker?

    I would just plug the old hard drive in to the new system and boot from it... then activate windows 11.
    Try safe mode
