    Your first link is absolutely not legit reseller. W10 PRO that costs 236,41SEK (Swedish crown, 27 USD) is not valid. Do you really think that Microsoft would sell PRO with 19 USD, then sell it so cheap to other resellers that they could sell the same with 27 USD, still making profit?

    Your second link seems legit, 1 649 SEK (186 USD) for OEM version of PRO could be as it should, thinking that in Sweden the Windows prices are higher than in US.

    A rule of thumb: Any Windows 10 license that costs under 1,000 SEK or 100 USD is most probably not legit. Or, rather, let's say that

    Alright thanks, What Windows 10 version would you suggest me to buy? I only use it on My personal computer.

    What will I say to support? if you couldnt help will they? seems ridiculous if I have to buy it again.
    Tell them that there was a hardware change etc..

    I can only work with what I have - they took away stuff so now they must up their game.. truth be told they would rather give away keys than figure the issues at hand - but hey, that's MS support

    In your case, I would by W10 Home. Judging by the fact that the illegal reseller link you posted and is now removed showed the prices in SEK, and that your other link was to a Swedish computer store chain, you are in Sweden,

    W10 Home in Microsoft Store Sverige (Sweden):

    That's 158 USD, with taxes (inkl. moms = including VAT / sales tax).

    Your request appears to be from an automated process

    First, I am not Dude.

    You need a valid, legit product key. I guess you found another cheap license and bought it. If I am wrong and you really bought a legit license for instance from Microsoft, you have right to get your refund (your money back) if the product key does not work.

    Alright so, like I mentioned I bought the key from Microsoft, and I don't think the problem is the key I think it has something to do with my current key wich isn't a valid one. Isnt there a way to like remove windows and reinstall it with my new legit key?
