I have an Ideapad 320-15IKB that came preinstalled with Windows 10 then updated it with Windows Pro 64bit as suggested by the system. I did not install any "not geniune" Windows After months of use, it had watermark at the right bottom of the screen saying "Activate Windows." I tried manual and troubleshoot to activate it but it wont work. I found a product key using Produkey and tried running it in command prompt (admin) however, it gives me Error 0x8007007B. I even downloaded RW-everything to look for the key but I can't find the msdm tab.
My questions is
How can i retrieve my windows 10 activation key?
Is my windows not geniune?
How can I activate my windows?

If your system came with Windows 10 Home installed, then the license stored in the BIOS is not going to activate Windows 10 Pro. If you purchased a copy of Windows 10 Pro, it should have come with its own product key, and it is that product key you must use to activate it.
This free utility will show you the Windows 10 Home Product key.
