    Just had to have windows reinstalled, now it is asking for my key or license. I had windows 10 on this pc before re install but bought the pc years ago and have no idea where to find or even if I have a key. Can you buy a key and if so is there a reputable place to get one legally ?

    Pro version? Just wait for a couple of updates to install and it should auto log the key or add a generic one.

    Home version doesn't need a key, it's unlocked and free.

    Did you have Win10 Home or Pro before?
    What key did you enter during setup? Oder did you select the "I have no key" option?

    I never have seen the screen you described. And I, too, would like to see some screens of this message.

    Maybe run an elevated cmd and this:

    Code:
    slmgr.vbs /dli
    
    ... as this gives a lot of info in a single popup. ;)

    Edit:
    Windows 11 Home generic key: YTMG3-N6DKC-DKB77-7M9GH-8HVX7

    Use a legit Win7, 8.1 key. It will work, activation is still on. Microsoft simply doesn't advertise it.
