If it had Win10 on it previously it will have a Digital Licence. During setup choose the option in small print that says something like "I do not have a Product Key" then if necessary validate the Licence after installing Win10

In the event of any problems just input the original Win8 key.

leave it blank, windows 10 will activate the first time you connect to the web as windows will look for the licence number on MS Servers.
