    That's good news!

    I think we should clarify something here;

    OEM key = legacy computers upto windows 7… the sticker on the bottom of the laptop has a serial key printed on it.

    MSDM key = windows 8 and above… the sticker on the bottom of the laptop DOESN'T have a serial key printed on it but there is a hidden copy of the serial stored in the motherboards electronics.

    Note: I don't recommend using older key finders like jellybean on new windows laptops because the encryption has changed since and they can report inaccurate serial keys.
