    Well, I paid $250 for an unopened Windows 10 Pro Retail Box and there is 100% no mistake as they provided a picture and full description. Here is the page I ordered from

    Microsoft Windows 10 Pro - Retail Box with Installation USB Microsoft



    | MyChoiceSoftware.com


    And look what they sent me instead:
    Windows 10 Pro - USB vs  Official Download-img_20220810_201351038.jpg

    Now, this looks like a home made disc to me, absolutely not what I ordered.

    Now, correct me if I am wrong but this looks like they just went and burnt the Media Creation Tool to disc. I aint opening it and will send it back demanding a refund and go get the real thing on ebay

    I was getting excited about this what a ffkking let down.

    I am sure it was unopened. It was factory sealed at a factory in China that mass produces these DVDs. Nothing genuine about that. Hopefully the Product Key is genuine. That is the only thing that matters anyways.

    I am not using this. I am returning it and demanding a refund. This wasnt what I paid for as shown in link I provided. Youd have to be pretty stupid to think someone would accept something like this and say well its okay.

    I will correct you, not that you will listen to what any of us are telling you anyway....what you got appears to be a genuine Microsoft System Builders version of Windows 10. But, I agree, it is not what was advertised.

    Ouch. I'm mystified why you paid so much when there are far cheaper options as advised.

    If you get a genuine copy of W7 then you can still upgrade for ZILCH !!!!!! Plenty of genuine W7 retail stuff around at around 40 USD or even less. !!!

    I was being sarcastic. I will get it off ebay instead for 1/5 the price.

    That was one of my other plans, getting a pre-wifi laptop installing Windows 7 and use it like an offline word processor so it cant be hacked but first I want to get this project completed before moving on to my vintage pursuits.

    What @jimbo45 was referring to was getting a cheap Windows 7 and upgrading it to Windows 10 to get the Windows 10 digital license. But it sounds like you have zero interest in less expensive methods that would get you the exact same results as the method you are determined to use.
