1. Open the "System" in the Windows, and get your serial number directly in the bottom.
2. There're three stickers on your LattePanda when receiving. One of them notes the serial number, which is 100% matching with the serial number shown in the "System". :)
Enjoy Tinkering with LattePanda ! :lol:

If you are referring to the windows 10 product activation key, then note that Microsoft store this key remotely tied with the devices serial number and other hardware components to make a unique ID.

As such, should the device need to be reinstalled, then so long as it has been activated online once, then you should be able to active online again without needing to enter in the product activation key as this has been stored on the Microsoft servers for you.

If you still wish to acquire the Windows 10 Product Activation Key then you can try the following:-

Code: Select all

Set WshShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
MsgBox ConvertToKey(WshShell.RegRead("HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\DigitalProductId"))

Function ConvertToKey(Key)
Const KeyOffset = 52
i = 28
Cur = 0
x = 14
Cur = Cur * 256
Cur = Key(x + KeyOffset) + Cur
Key(x + KeyOffset) = (Cur \ 24) And 255
Cur = Cur Mod 24
x = x -1
Loop While x >= 0
i = i -1
KeyOutput = Mid(Chars, Cur + 1, 1) & KeyOutput
If (((29 - i) Mod 6) = 0) And (i <> -1) Then
i = i -1
KeyOutput = "-" & KeyOutput
End If
Loop While i >= 0
ConvertToKey = KeyOutput
End Function
Paste it to Notepad, click save as, select all files, and name it something.vbs, where something is a name you can remember (I chose keyfinder.vbs - catchy, eh?). Save it to your desktop (or other easily remembered location), run it, and viola. Hit ctrl-c while the window is open, and it copies your key to the clipboard so you can paste it anywhere you may find to be convenient.

You dont need your product key in windows 10. As the panda is running an OEM Version of Windows 10, its bound to the hardware. microsoft has registered your motherboard/cpu as identification for your license. if you reinstall windows, you dont have to enter a product key, you can finish it without the license key. but as soon as windows is installed, you should look that you either have an internet connection so the panda can license your windows key again or you have to make a free call to windows to activate your key again.

The Win 10 Key is stored in you hardware since win 8 you get no windows key.
MS use it to stop selling license keys. You can install just win 10 you only need to be online.
Live long and prosper!
