  1. I accidentally formatted pre installed windows for my newly purchased laptop


    Hi, I recently purchased a new laptop which had pre installed Windows 10 in one of the default partitions. I did not know if it had the pre installed windows at first so I proceeded with normal USB windows installation. Now I have ended up with unlicensed Windows on a machine which had Pre Activated Windows. How do I activate my current OS since the machine was meant to have a licensed OS?


    Note: I did not boot with the pre installed windows, meaning the solution of linking my OS to my MS Account won't apply in this case.

    :)
