    Unhappy I have a cracked windows 10 installed gl552vl rog laptop, what can I do?

    I have a gl552vl rog laptop. it used not to succesfully install windows updates. Updates end up in a stuck asus screen and i needed to hard reboot to start the pc again and update fails. In one instance it was installing the update and i decided since it was gonna fail why don't i abort it and do a hard reboot right away in the middle of a update installation. It was clearly not a wise decision so it got bricked i believe or something like that. People who I asked what to do recommended me to do a clean installation. So I built a cracked windows and now I want to switch into a genuine one for obvious reasons. Is there any way to obtain my windows license key or if I download windows iso from official website and do a proper clean installation will it be obtained from inside of pc. My recovery partition is deleted because i can't enter recovery. Please help me on what to do with my pc!

    Reinstall Windows 10 home 64-bit from ISO
    During install select "I do not have a product key" when prompted
    Windows will activate based on hardware fingerprint when you reconnect to the internet.

    Do you have ANY data / photos etc on the laptop that you need to save? Because if you simply reinstall windows, you will likely lose all that data.
    If you need to save any data, there is a way to do that even if you cannot boot the machine.
    And windows 10 doesn't need to be "cracked". it is free to download and install....but Activation is requested.

    Good luck.
