    Windows 10 Pro OEM issue


    Hi,



    recently I purchased Lenovo desktop with Preinstalled OEM version of Windows 10 Pro.

    I expected to receive a PC with Windows label with OEM Product key and with factory installed OS on it, well packed and sealed in a factory box.

    Unfortunately, the result was not like that. First of all, the box was unsealed, which means that the PC was used before I receive it, then I got a PC without Windows label and with product key



    XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-WFG6P



    I googled this product key, and I found many websites with this key, related to software piracy.

    Further more, I opened BIOS to try to check the license there, but what I found were the following fields/values:

    "Preinstalled OS License"/"NOK"

    "OA3 License Key ID"/"NO DPK"

    These values led me to be more suspicious about the license of my Windows.

    Somewhere on web I found that the Windows labels are not mandatory anymore for OEM licenses, because they are preinstalled in BIOS, but these values in BIOS doesn't give me some valuable information that there is Windows Pro license there.



    Please help!!!

    :)

    my windows 10 oem didn't come with a product key

    Dude, go to Newegg right now and read the questions and answers tab on Windows 10 OEM. The OEM copies that are listed there DO in fact, come on an optical disc. The flash drive ONLY comes on Retail copies.

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK
