Buying a windows 7 key have questions...

I would like to have windows 7 for my new PC that I am building and I was shoping around on ebay and noticed that I can buy a key for much cheaper. Whats the deal with this and where am I going to find the software to use the key with?

Best something in Texas.... just don't know what it is yet....

Sounds kinda fishy if you ask me. Are you trying to buy it off craigslist or something?

If you are a student, you can get Win 7 for about $35.

search windows 7 in the back porch, and you'll find a link to a site where you can buy it for $30...you have to have a valid .edu e-mail address, but you can go to mail.australia.edu and get one for free. it's home premium, but if you click on a link that says "must be on a domain" or someting like that, it will give you pro.

This is for a key to the ultimate edition. I would rather have that unless it's a scam.

i don't see how it wouldn't be a scam or stolen...but who knows... maybe they bought multiple licenses and are selling the extras.

From what I have read they are MSDN Technet license keys. And, though they are not illegal, I would hate to buy one that has been used to many times and winds up getting blacklisted by Microsoft.

Well I bought it, here is the listing if you want to look it over.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...=STRK:MEWAX:IT

I am prepared for it to be a bust but am hoping for the best. $40 is not going to kill me if it is lost. Its worth the gamble to me to get it at this kind of discount. Now I just need to find the software to plug this key into.

I have a copy of Ultimate that the key will work on. Also have the activator to bypass needing a key.
I will burn you a copy and send it to you for $10

I downloaded and burned a copy of ultimate the other day. I will find out tonight if it works or not. If it does not I will buy the copy from you but will just use the key I purchased.

you should be able to find an unlocker and iso off torrent sites if you really want it.

I did, this is how I found the software to put my key with. I bought the key because I had a new machine ready to go and did not have another machine capable of running a 64 bit os to test anything that I downloaded. So I wanted as little trouble as possible getting it going. In my dealings with torrents if any of it is bad it is usually the "unlocker", the software is usually intact. There are really good .iso's of 32 and 64 bit ultimate right now on piratebay.
