    Activate Windows 8.1 with inbuilt key - is it possible


    I have a HP Envy laptop which is just loaded with junk, windows is slow and everything just feels very "sluggish"

    Is there a way of reinstalled Windows using a clean ISO and activating it using the inbuilt key ? there is no sticker on the laptop showing what the actually key is for Windows however I presume its visual in the UEFI (providing I have got the right terminology)

    does what I want to do make sense and if so, is it possible ?
