Question about reinstalling windows with a Digital License.

Alright so my dad had bought an Dell Inspirin 3646 from best buy with a digital license of Windows 10. I built him an entirely new pc with an SSD. How do i register Windows 10 on the new SSD using his old license? I can't find a product key anywhere. Right now the new pc is up and running but Windows 10 is unregistered and it keeps asking us to activate it. Appreciate any help! <3

No key, log in-to the MS account that was used to activate it and that should do it. There may be a link on the activation page.
