Hello and welcome,

 

If the machine came with 8.1 the key is embedded in the BIOS and should be detected during install.  You can get install media here:

As I said and you've seen there's no sticker for Windows 8.x or 10.  The key is in BIOS.

 

Make sure you're downloading the same version - base, pro, or enterprise - that was originally on your laptop.

 

[edit to add] Is there an option to skip or ignore the key entry request?  Try that.
