    Hi there.

    I have a new Dell W10 Pro system and I would like to obtain the Windows Product Key.
    Isn't that stored in the system BIOS?

    Please advise on how to obtain that information.

    Thanks!

    No need to do that. Here is an easier way to get it from an elevated command prompt.
    Code:
    wmic path softwarelicensingservice get OA3xOriginalProductKey

    I seem to recall that in a far ago time, one was able to use 'ctrl+v' to paste a command into the elevated prompt. Now I may well be wrong, but I ask because I am wondering the purpose of the above coded instruction of 'wmic path softwarelicensingservice get OA3xOriginalProductKey' I tried, multiple times to paste the copied text into the cmd prompt, and all I get in the cmd window is literally "^V".

    So..is there a way to be able to enter copied text into a cmd window and have it run the intended program or task?

    Unfortunately, I can't upload the image directly. But there is no serial key output.. The win 10 version I installed is 1909.

    I'm wondering if your BIOS has an MSDM table.

    I had different results for Different version's of Windows, Both were updated from Win 7 Ultimate that used DAZ loader when Win 10 came out.

    Win 10 1909
    Code:
    PS C:\Windows\system32> wmic path softwarelicensingservice get OA3xOriginalProductKey
    OA3xOriginalProductKey
    Win 10 1809
    Code:
    PS C:\WINDOWS\system32> wmic path softwarelicensingservice get OA3xOriginalProductKey
    OA3xOriginalProductKey
    MGWDN-M7XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

    The version of Windows 10 you're using and Daz loader and Windows 7 have nothing to do with the key in the bios.

    I did a test on a PC (my official work PC) that has a MSDM key in BIOS (OA3) but uses a legit digital license (w10 enterprise).

    Code:
    wmic path softwarelicensingservice get OA3xOriginalProductKey
    Obtained the MSDM key from BIOS ACPI (verified with rw-everything).

    It might 'not work' if there is no key in BIOS at all...
