    You also forgot that it violates MS terms and conditions to use the OEM CD-KEY on a computer that you intend to keep for personal use, and, therefore, just as illegal to use that way. Although "illegal" is kind of a grey area because I don't think any actual law would be broken - only Microsoft's terms and conditions of use.
    That is strange because I could have bought an OEM key off of Amazon just ran short of money...
    and sad..

    Here is the info from Microsoft:
    https://devicepartner.microsoft.com/...r-personal-use

    If you are building a system for your personal use or installing an additional operating system (OS) in a virtual machine, you will have to purchase a full version of Windows 10, available in FPP. Windows 10, Windows 8.1, and Windows 7 system builder software does not permit personal use and is intended only for preinstallation on customer systems that will be sold to end users.
