isn't it obvious this method is just as likely to go bad for you as simply using a cracker/activator for free?

The link still works, but it says I will get a broken motherboard. For £2.07 total, there's no way that's going to happen.

Bought Win 10 and office 2016 both from ebay for £1.99 each, activated fine. Probably come from corporate machines with valid COAs' but bulk licenced.

it will just be an unused OEM key form an ex- corp machine.

corrected for you.....

I currently have 20+ machines sitting in my shed right now with unused Win7 Pro OEM keys on them that will happily activate on a Win10Pro install. I see machines skipped everyday on just the account I work for, the same happens in many places...

You can save a few quid, just find someone selling a base unit on ebay, one with a decent picture of the machine will show the key sticker. oops lol.

If it looks too good to be true, it usually is. And even if it is keys from a corporate licence, Microsoft will soon pick up on the fact that a licence for 100 PC's has been used a thousand times and will deactivate accordingly, maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but...

Good luck.

no problem if used just once

I get the impression some vendors sell the same key more than once...

They wont deactivate any of these, Microsoft want Windows 10 on every PC they can for several reasons.

They tried to get everyone to upgrade sharpish by giving you a year to upgrade, then left open an accessibility upgrade path with no close date, i don't need to say more.

Furthermore, Microsoft currently even allow you to upgrade and activate pirate copies of windows, they could easily block it but haven't yet, wonder why

OEM keys from different regions are known as grey products, so they may or may not activate, but if they do, Microsoft is perfectly within their rights to deactivate at any time keys used in regions they are not intended for. So whatever and wherever they come from, you may still find that eventually your product will need to be re-licensed or otherwise paid for. If you want to use the product, pay for it properly, or move to a free distro of Linux. However much you may or may not dislike Microsoft, it's still theft. OEM keys are sold to companies such as Dell, HP etc. at a much reduced price, and the difference between OEM and retail, is that the OEM key is tied to the original PC with which it is sold, whereas the retail version, you can transfer from your old PC to a new one when the time comes. It is more expensive for the retail version for this exact reason.

So wherever this has come from, it is not strictly legal and will not conform to the licence agreement and therefore could be disabled at any time. I guess for the price, it may be worth a punt, but it's not legal.

Anyone else notice the lack of stories of actual deactivation? Loads of positive feedback on the vendors pages selling these keys over a long time period. Agree there is a risk but there is with 100% genuine! Microsoft. I got screwed with Vista so I figure they owe me.

How has an Operating system ruined your laptop to the point you need to buy a new one? Fair enough not everyone likes the windows 10 Interface (easily fixed with classicshell or similar) but If you realy don't like Windows 10 why not just re-install the old operating system

It doesn't load anymore. I tried resetting it and it still doesn't work properly. On another laptop, it caused the touchpad to stop working (luckily it was easy enough to uninstall and reinstall the drivers to fix it)

No clue how to, and little point as I rarely use it now. Already tried doing a clean install of W10 in hope it would fix things up (it didn't).

I have seen Microsoft disable keys for Office and Windows many times. Most common is when an employee gives out a corporate Office key to his friends, then they give it to their friends etc. It's not long before MS disable the keys in this scenario. Also, OEM keys that have been activated on one machine, quite often fail to activate on another, sometimes you can blag it on Microsoft's automated phone system by choosing the right options, but other times, it just says NO.

Is that enough stories for you. I used to work in IT and saw this fairly often.

There is a possibility of course that your laptop had some undetected hardware issues and the upgrade has made them surface

What does it do on startup?

The thing is, this may be the case with windows 7 and 8, however the business model is changing somewhat with operating systems. Mega money is in the advertising and shopping habits, ask Google and HUKD!!....... Microsoft will happily give you a free operating system so they can farm this data.

The next iteration of Windows will most likely have a free option

I agree you really have to be careful of that Windows 10, sneaks up on your perfectly fine laptop with a gun and a bandanna then hammers it while your not looking.

Joking aside, if your buying a new laptop because you installed Windows 10, then the issue isn't the laptop, its the owner. Like any trade, if you cant DIY get a professional to do it for you.

It still works but it is much much slower than it used to be. And I've had to change all my preferences for everything because it reset them all to default. Fan started overheating and computer started making random beeping noises. This is probably a time thing, but I've also been getting warnings that my battery capacity is significantly less than its original amount (it was either 50% or 20%).

Well, tbh, no its not.
You describe a different scenario which presents a different set of risks. There are thousands of satisfied buyers and no direct horror stories of disabled software through this route. Yet. Of course it's a risk but that's obvious at this price.
I'm running three copies of office 2016 and all going just fine for now. If it gets turned off I have lots of ways to very quickly get back up and running, all for about £6. I would be nervous about having an operating system through this route, wouldn't know how to prove if that got disabled. For software packages though, I'm happy with the risk.

That's odd to me, because even if Microsoft deactivated your key you can still use your PC and operating system, and if necessary activate again with another key?

In the past the worst they have ever done is give you a black wallpaper and a nag screen, windows 10 may stop you setting some preferences, but nothing to be nervous about?? :)

you'd know If the OS key was disabled as you will get a Non genuine watermark on the desktop. that's about the only downside to running a non genuine copy of windows nowadays...

Even if you never activate your Windows 10, you can use it forever, so I wouldn't worry about deactivation. There is no such thing as de-activating Windows.
