Non genuine keys as no COA.

@alexjameshaines

Does it really matter? If the key activates and you can link it your MS account, whats the problem?

"YOU WILL GET A BROKEN MOTHERBOARD AND OFFICIAL DVD THAT COMES WITH THE OEM KEY AS REQUIRED TO COMPLY WITH eBAY POLICY OF OEM SOFTWARE. CONTACT US FOR MORE DETAILS"
- i wonder if they will actually deliver a motherboard and an official dvd...

Oh god not this again..

I bought an Office Professional 2016 key (from eBay for £5.99) for my son's PC as an experiment, it has worked just fine. There are plenty of people that say it will not work, or that it is illegal and the police will smash down our door one night - but neither has happened so far!

I bought one of these keys once and then the next day my shoe laces came untied in the street. Be warned.

Seen similar for Office too, am a bit dubious, anybody bought a key off Ebay before?

Surely this can't be legitimate

These keys usually last a year or so then are blocked. Your system will stay activated but when it comes to a reinstall the key will be invalid.

You can still upgrade for free

And round and round and round we go!

For people with basic queries, have a look through some of the MANY threads on these keys.

W10 only needs a key if the user has an uncontrollable infatuation to change the default desktop background to some silly image of the user's choice.

You do still need a valid license of windows 7 or 8 to do this - but well worth it if you do.

You don't actually need a key to reinstall Windows 10 btw, if you've activated on that hardware before it'll activate a clean install for you as soon as you're online.
Agree that these keys are pretty shady though... Got a Office 2016 one that's working fine, but YMMV...

If anyone can confirm this works let me know please i would be interested.

after a cheap 365 license if avail...

​ if it doesn't work, eBay would refund you if the seller didn't; worst case scenario, you lose a whopping £2.20!

Obviously fake, you're a mug if you think this isn't

oos

Done the 'key scrap' deals a few times, and they work fine! Even easier with Windows 10 now, since the key gets tied to the hardware through EFI/Secure Boot. These keys are usually collected through scrap units from large corps, and are never used/registered. Every one I've bought over the last couple years has continued working fine

Personally prefer Manjaro!

But in all honesty, for a nice, clean, user friendly and free OS, you can't look far past Elementary OS. Very, very simple OS, even a couple of my none Linux friends could use this without any issues.

OEM keys are far more expensive than this.

These are most likely expired OEM keys taken from machines now using volume licences. Assuming you are sent the CoA (licence sticker/registration) this means that the company that released them is no longer legitimately licensed. Neither are you, the buyer. So it's lose-lose bar the very large fact that the middle-man's made an easy profit and generally the keys still work! It's in no way 'legit' but Microsoft don't seem too concerned about cracking down on it.

Real men use Arch.

Despite what the ill informed people would have you believe this deal is legal.

Microsoft lost it's case in the European courts when trying to ban the resale of licences.

Resale of OEM licences, where the terms specifically state the licence is tied to the machine, or the resale of retail licences where the licence can be used on any machine you want? im pretty sure its the latter, and that these keys will not be legally licenced. If you honestly believe they are, go buy yourself one, phone up microsoft, give them all your personal details, and tell them what you bought, from where, and that its on your pc and see what they say, im betting you wont.

You cited a European ruling - except of course it's completely and utterly irrelevant here.

That ruling was about people being allowed to resell licenses as they were originally bought. And you are allowed to resell Microsoft OEM licenses as they were originally bought - i.e. together with the computer it came licensed to...

I suspect you will ignore those "FACTS" though

Oh, the facts on the internet. Are they the same facts that Donald Trump uses? Where are these FACTS on the internet you keep referring to specifically related to OEM licences, and the resale of specifically OEM licences. Links please.
