    You shouldn't need a product key to recover a Win10 machine unless you replace the HDD.
    normally the key details are on a sticker on the underside of the computer or in the paperwork supplied with the machine.

    Apparently if the LT came we it’s Win10 installed, you don’t need a PK, and you don’t have to Activate it. (Can’t recall if I did or not). The recovery USB will pick it up somehow.

    So have ordered it and we will see.

    The £14.99 recovery USB arrived today, and after 10 minutes of messing about, it all worked. it only took about 10/15 minutes, once I got it going, I assumed it would be ages.

    Thanks all for your help.
