The code you've provided isn't a laptop Machine-Type-Model (MTM) one. Get it on the laptop bottom, it begins with 20BE or 20BF.
Or take a look at the systemboard, there is a sticker on the SODIMM socket with mobo p/n, 7 symbols next to 52S, should begin with 00UP

The mobo in your laptop 20BFS10L00:
NOK, no CPU, INT, UMA, Std, AMT, TPM
Servce p/n (FRU) 00UP920 or 04X5281, depending on the manufacturing date.

Actually, you could replace it by any mobo with integrated graphics, there are more than 30+ compatible FRUs. A lot of them is windows key free in the BIOS as yourth one (NOK index in the description).

Note, you should be ready to apply laptop's MTM, s/n and UUID to new mobo. For some information take a look at HMM for the laptop though this is a procedure for Lenovo authorized service providers.
