You could try this. I own W7 and upgraded to W10 insider, I think it took itself to RTM at some point. Or you could just have them run insider, unless maybe it expires some time.

I found I needed to load drivers in windows 7 to connect to internet, then authenticate, then verification through MS website, all good.
The loaded Windows 10 no problems, authenticated.

Hi all, there has been a referral to Kinguin recently for purchasing Windows 7 keys. Has anyone had any negative experiences a year after this thread first started.

 

I had a quick look and I see that you have the option of specifying a source (reseller) for the key. The default reseller for me is GetitCheap.pro, however when you google this reseller you get a lot of negative feedback. You could even go directly to Giitcheap... and purchase a key even more cheaply.

 

Can you recommend a specific Windows key reseller option in Kinguin? I.e. key not deactivated or flagged for piracy.

 

Cheers 

 

PS: Thanks to Mod for unlocking.

You'd have to ask yourself "why are those Microsoft product keys so cheap?"

Are you stating they are not legitimate or legal?

I'd say that was heavily implied yes...

 

Chances are these are keys from one of Microsoft's volume sources like MSDN or a volume license or something similar. SO while not cracked or illegal as such, they would certainly be contrary to the terms of the program that issued them or to Microsoft's EULA. 

 

People can't seriously think that these are 100% genuine articles like you would buy from a legitimate Microsoft reseller being sold for 1/10th the price you can buy them for elsewhere.

and yet you wanted....
" I.e. key not deactivated or flagged for piracy"

 

if you dont really care if its bogus, why even ask ?
Even seen bogus, purchased keys been flagged as pirated, many months after install .
