    The code is a few years old as i haven’t thought to look into whether i can find the second half of the key.Also, my computer is currently giving me Error code: 0x800705B4 in the activation page in settings. The error code is alongside a message that says “we can’t activate windows on this device right now”

    Windows 10 sticker with serial key damaged when scratched to reveal it.

    I just bought a new computer with a win 10 64bit USB from a local computer store.

    When installed windows 10 asked for serial I pressed activate later.

    A few days later wanted to activate my windows 10 and started scratching the back of the sticker because it had a tiny grey patch over it. While scratching to reveal the serial number I damaged the sticker and can't
    tell what are the first 4 numbers for the key, the other number are shown.

    Windows 10 sticker with serial key damaged when scratched to reveal it.

    Hello,

    I just bought a new computer with a win 10 64bit USB from a local computer store.

    When installed windows 10 asked for serial I pressed activate later.

    A few days later wanted to activate my windows 10 and started scratching the back of the sticker because it had a tiny grey patch over it. While scratching to reveal the serial number I damaged the sticker and can't tell what are the first 4 numbers for
    the key, the other number are shown.

    xxxxo-ooooo-ooooo-ooooo-ooooo (x - not readable ; 0 - readable)

    Could someone tell me what can I do in order to recover my serial ?

    If there is a file on the USB with the original key or something like that?!
