Windows 10: Install W10 after 7/29. Lose activation if accessibility turned off
I think this is the answer:
I don't think the volume (MAK) license came from MS.
Worrying though, is a refurbisher buys Dell and installs a VL (why?) when it has a valid Win 8 upgrade licence. Then MS support trots along and upgrades/repairs without checking the licence?...
Some crazy going on out there...
I have bought from the guy multiple times. In the past the Dell's he sold came with Win 10 activated. This time the two I bought came with Win 8.1. I asked why and he said it wasnt't free to upgrade anymore so he just passes them through as they came from Dell.
Fair enough, I do not mean to apportion blame, just wondering...why they would sell an OEM PC with a Volume licence.
Should they take posession of a DELL trade-in, it should be reset to factory, rather than retain the enterprise installation from whence it came.
As a follow up. As suggested I recently recovered the Win 8 OEM keys from the two Dell's using ShowKeyPlus and used them for "change product key" option and all seems OK. I don't have to use Ease of Access settings anymore.
A while back on this BBS I read about installing windows 10 without activating it because you want to give your computer away and want the new owner to activate and put in all the setting that they want.
