I bought a new laptop from that well known high street retailer which is closing down recently.
The laptop was a display model so I accepted it at a discount.

Now I have just realised there appears to be no Windows activation key either in the documents or anywhere on the laptop.

Should there be an activation code in case I need it in the future.

Thanks.

You no longer get the key printed on anything with royalty oem systems, the key is embedded directly in the BIOS ACPI tables at the factory.

Just got a HP DM1 today with win8 on, was wondering the same as I noticed there was no coa sticker anywhere, my old win7 dm1 was under the battery cover, i used acronis to clone the disk to my 500gb drive
