Activation code for virtualisation of Windows OS

Hello,

I just bought an Ideapad S330, it works really well.

I was forced to buy it with a preinstalled Windows 10. I don't really need it, so i installed a Linux Debian and, just in case, a virtualized windows 10 family (the same that was preinstalled). I can't find the activation code of the windows OS, it's not on the computer, nor on the box.

How can i find it ?

Many thanks for your replies,

Guillaume

The code is in the UEFI. As a rule, this will be requested automatically after the Windows installation and the operating system will be activated automatically. In a virtual system, it will probably not be possible to fall back on the code in the UEFI. That's why your project does not work.

Thanks for your answer.

Precisely, this is why I need the activation code. If I change my motherboard, I'll be in the same case : I paid a licence MS Windows, not a UEFI MS Windows.
