Follow the steps below to complete the setup process.


To avoid damaging the data on the computer, do not restart your computer during the setup process.
During the setup process, Windows 10 might take a long time to process an item without visual feedback on the screen to indicate progress. This is normal.

  4. To connect to a network (Internet), click your preferred network from the list of options.

If your network is not listed or if you are unable to connect to the Internet, click Skip this step to continue without a wireless connection. You can then set up the network later.

        Product Key Entry Procedure

        To Ensure you activate your device using the Refurbished product key found on the             certificate of authenticity(COA) by completing these 3 steps.

  1. Go into the Settings and select Update & Security
            2. Select Activation and the Change Product key option

        3.Enter a serial key, otherwise click on Do this later to skip this option.

           Windows product key is usually on a multicolored, Microsoft-branded sticker on                   your PC case or underside of the laptop casing .  


        You can also skip this step, using the Do This Later link in the lower left. If you do                that, you need to enter the key later, using the Activation page in Settings. Until you            do that, some features of Windows 10 won't work properly.

    DVD was not in box. I have no Office or Windows 10. I will need the Windows 10 disc in case I may need to reinstall at sometime.
