Did you buy a system with Windows bundled with it? If so you will have a sticker with a cd-key somewhere on the outside of your system.

Simply download a install .ISO file from Microsoft appropriate to your Windows edition (Home, Pro, etc), and using ISO 2 USB, make a boot USB drive. Then boot from the boot USB drive you just made and install Windows, and use the CD-Key printed on the side of your system on the sticker.

If you don't have any such sticker, then you will have to contact Customer Service for your system manufacturer.

well if it's windows 10 (not sure about other versions), the activation key is linked to your email, so the moment you enter it, windows is activated

best,

Thanks GamerGuy, I was able to reinstall windows without a key.  I think the BOIS keeps that information somewhere and automatically recognized the key.
