Will I need a Windows key for a factory restore?

Want to factory restore a used laptop my brother bought, will it need a Windows key if I do the factory restore?I am wanting to use the built in factory restore (comes up when I push F8 at startup and choose to repair)I\’d also like to include that it didn\’t come with the Windows key that\’s usually at the bottom.What are the options I have? 

Factory restore Dell = No Key required < most of the timeClean Install off of another image = Key required < all of the time
