    Can't I just buy a product key?


    I know, people think I am mental. Well you are right.

    I would personally just prefer to buy a product key and/or hard copy of Windows 10. Why can't I find anywhere to do this?

    Yes I own 3 licensed copies of 8.1 pro

    Me to I would buy it! Wont go backward to install Se7en because there was no installer in the box when I purchase the computer five years ago. So where I can buy Win Ten Pro?

    I say we start a protest against Microsoft giving away stuff for free. Start a movement. Even better, maybe someone could just direct me to a legitimate place to buy a key?

    You can buy it in many places. For instance...

    Unfortunately, it appears that Microsoft are focused on their Upgrade process at the moment, and you cannot purchase it yet in the UK.

    However, some digging found this > Windows 10 Pro: Upgrade or Purchase - Microsoft Store
    Hopefully they will get something on there soon.

    As for Physical media, as far as i am aware, MS declared a discontinuation for physical media, meaning you will need to create it yourself anyway.

    You can pre-order from SCAN and maybe a couple of other places.

    isn't that funny. But your right, although I just found a local mob that I buy hardware from that are selling the following
    Microsoft Windows Professional 10 32-bit/64-bit USB Flash Drive and its actually cheaper than MS Australia.

    It would now appear I have regained my ability to use the internet.
