Windows 10 is familiar and easy to use, with lots of similarities to Windows 7 including the Start menu. It starts up and resumes fast, has more built-in security to help keep you safe, and is designed to work with software and hardware you already have.

Before you buy, please read these notes and FAQ!

- This is only for the Windows Product Key, a download link will be provided after checkout

- Is intended for use with new PCs only

- Cannot be used to directly upgrade from an older Operating System

- Requires a clean installation, and all prior data must be backed up

- Does not come with free direct support from Microsoft

- Will not allow for a change to a different motherboard model once installed

Limited time offer

Very cheap OEM key

That's a proper dodgy situation they have going on there!
No big surprise though with this type of seller. Windows licence prices are fairly fixed, anything that looks too good to be true usually is.
I'm actually surprised Hotdeals have allowed these threads given its blatantly not legal. I posted a deal about a year ago for a China based company who have an office in the UK and many others globally and trade within the law but the thread was pulled as it was a China company they didn't know


It's not illegal. It is against Microsoft's EULA (end-user license agreement) which contains clauses about how it must be bought as a fully-boxed version with installation media, and installed on an OEM machine. Microsoft can request these are removed from sale and refuse to supply companies in breach, for example if you try and sell a key only on eBay they will pull it as eBay and Microsoft work together to stop keys being sold this way, but it is not illegal. The police will not turn up and arrest you for it. Being in breach of the EULA however, means you have breached a legal contract between the end-user and Microsoft, and therefore Microsoft have every right to revoke the key if they find out.

It appears however that several companies work out of China/Singapore to sell keys only and Microsoft, as others, can't really do anything about it. G2Play are another big company who do it with keys for steam, and people have been buying from there for years with no issue.

Is the upgrade instant?

I know on one of my laptops (Win8.1) I get the pop-up every (sodding) time I turn it on... But if I did ever say "Yes" does it basically do it there and then?

Or does it give me a Downloadable Set-up/EXE with a Key?

Will I have the option to reset/wipe the laptop too?

​I tried that way and didn't work. Called MS and they said the key is fine to use. Tried a clean install as well and also didn't work. The previous key I got from them worked fine. Went from win 7 to win 10 pro easily.

Just download the ISO to a USB drive, but from drive and do a free fresh install of Windows 7, at activation page, should personal and not business use and it activates for free. No need to buy it all, certainly no need to buy an older version just to upgrade to Windows 10.

I used the key directly on Windows 10 and it worked straight away, no need to upgrade with the previous offer

Use this to download the windows 10 ISO and copy it to a USB stick which you can then install it from. A completely legitimate method provided by Microsoft.

Key arrived in less than 10mins, I then contacted MS to check it's a valid key.

Considering this breaches the software license, you might as well just pirate it - you're in no better standing by buying an illegally distributed key like this.

It's NOT legit. It's not illegal, it's not pirate and it's very unlikely to be a problem down the line. But it's NOT legit. Keys sold like this aren't meant to be sold like this (which makes it not legit). MS aren't likely to find out/make a fuss about it but it's definitely NOT legit.

That aside, yes, I use them without issue. Just don't be all offended and complainy if its revoked at some point (buy another, "upgrade to a new version of windows" enter the new key and it should all be golden again). If this sounds like hassle, you'll need to buy a full retail key.

Yeah I re-installed Windows 7 on my PC, the Windows (file) explorer kept freezing in Windows 10, and I couldn't see any of my drives. I tried googling it and couldn't find a solution.

So if I grab that ISO (I can burn it to a disc too right?) put it to USB (does the USB have to be blank or formatted a particular way - or just the raw ISO file sitting in there?)

Plug it in, turn computer/laptop on - it will detect Windows 10 ISO, fresh install, wipe everything and have Win10 ready to go?

(But then requiring a Serial Key to activate/validate once installed - to which I can enter one of the £7 Win7 Keys?)

Is that about the long and short of it?

PS Thanks for your help on this!

is a pirated version worse/ better than a non legitimate installation? I know which I'd prefer if I was to go one of those two routes, but I'd rather have a legitimate licenced installation.

Buy this on the understanding that MScould revoke the key at some future time. 'could'

Agree, that's explaining it in more detail. I'd argue it's still illegal, if it wasn't what value does any contract have.

Yep that correct except there is no need to acquire a serial key before hand (so no need to purchase anything) Microsoft are giving away Windows 10 free. Just install from the created memory stick or disk and at the license page choose personal use and Microsoft will auto populate the key and activate windows totally free of charge.

Not sure why people keep posting these "apparently cheap ways to get Windows 10" when it is completely free anyway, whether you have a previous version of Windows or not.
