    I can sort a win 7 pro key and then the instructions on how to upgrade to win 10 pro for free if that's any use? The eBay option is faster and easier though.

    thought the upgrade option had been closed now even using the accessibility option

    Have you had the damaged beyond repair motherboard or computer?
    read the listing it states you will receive the damaged beyond repair computer.
    With free postage too I would request it just to be a cunt LMAO.

    Therefore, this sale includes the original broken beyond economical repair computer and motherboard.

    personally the bit about the knackered computers is bullshit just for ebays ears and eyes, i think the keys are more than likely mass volume keys destined for business use.

    Yes they will be volume licenses and when the company stops paying the annual subs the keys will fail.

    Will that mean a new key is needed for those that have bought one? Or is it a case, once it's activated, you're good to go?

    as long as you make recovery media once installed & if you have to format using made recovery disks it should be fine. the bios has the key.
    2 mates have bought from fleebay, bath have formatted a few times & all was ok.
    OR
    i got one of these last month, 20 disk & lic label, it says refurb in the lable but has full key label.

    If there is any concern about the future, maybe an idea to create an image once win 10 is installed and activated?

    With Windows 10 they tend to have a digital licence so once you are activated a digital fingerprint of your system is saved on the MS servers, if you ever reinstall it you can skip the product key entry and it will auto-activate. I'm not sure if they will ever remove or block a device from the database. I've heard of people with dodgy Win 7 installs upgrade to Win 10, receive the licence for free and now it's a legit licence with auto-activation so long as there isn't a major hardware change which alters the fingerprint.
