    ok, I can give it a shot if my new Win 10 key doesn't work...

    Excellent fall-back idea.

    And keep it forever ... wouldn't be the first time that a Win 10 key has worked on installation, only to be blocked months later when Microsoft find out (if ut's going to happen, will commonly happen during updates)

    I know that already...
    what I am saying is that the seller claims its already in UPS hands... in a container with other items being shipped from that seller...
    and it has not budged an inch since they shipped it Friday and I bought it Friday...

    I am worried its gotten lost...
    If a seller shipped it on Friday it probably won't be picked by UPS until the following Monday at the earliest. That assumes that the seller has UPS do daily pickups. If the seller has to drop it off at UPS then it will start tracking then.

    You need to ask the seller when UPS actually took possession of the package. If it was last Friday and the tracking has not started yet you need to call UPS to see what is going on with the shipment.

    How many names can the one business have?? I can't count the number of times I've done a Whois check on a domain name that's selling cheap software keys, and it always leads me to 14455 N. Haydn Rd Scottsdale AZ., just like cdkeysales.com just did !
    It's a major office building with countless suites.

    GoDaddy world headquarters as far as I know.

    So I have 3 HDDs & a CD-ROM:
    • C:\ Win7 OS/boot
    • D:\ Bluray drive
    • E: Game drive
    • F:\ Storage/server Drive


    SHOULD I disconnect them before I install Windows 10 on the NEW Samsung EVO 970 NVMe I bought too?
    that's what I am thinking I will do... then reconnect them after in the order I would prefer them..

    Disconnect all possible drives other than the one you want to receive Windows.

    ok, and will it be safe to reconnect them after Windows has been finished installing on my NVMe?

    I'd probably let Windows Update have its way with me before I reconnected other drives. That's just me. It shouldn't matter as long as you are satisfied that the installation is "complete" and you have successfully rebooted a time or two.

    I'd probably take a look at Windows Disk Management before I reconnected anything as well. The new drive may be drive 0, drive 1 or whatever. You may as well get a look at what partitions were made on the new drive before going any farther.

    Reasonable chance you won't need any of the drivers as Windows will supply all it can. I wouldn't get in a lather about changing whatever Windows supplies, barring any particular issues.

    Good to have the NIC driver on hand. In rare instances, you may not have an Internet connection post install and so would need it.

    Take a look at Device Manager immediately post install to see any possible issues.
