What operating system originally came with this laptop? Both Windows 10 and 8 in later models had keys embedded in the motherboard. When you install, it will self activate with those keys.

I'm here to second that. I work in PC repair and if it is a Windows 8 or above PC with an embedded key it should just activate.

It should let you skip applying a serial code. It will notify you continuously though. There are some sites that give out codes (cant post here). Be wary on such sites as many are a bit sketchy
