Will I need a new a product key if I reinstall Windows?

My pc is on a reboot loop and I figured I may need to reinstall Windows 10, but I lost the disk drive and the activation key (I\’m an idiot). I\’ve read online that with a new motherboard, it saves the product key onto the bios. I was going to download a bootable drive but is this true?

Reinstalling on the same system, you do not need a new license key.During the install, when it asks for the license key…at the bottom of that window there is a link for "I don\’t have a product key"Click that, and proceed.When the system next goes online, it will activate itself.
