windows Os

Just a quick question ,im about to replace my old work desk top so will need a copy of windows , the last time i did this i brought a disc and key and paid the going rate .
my question being are the digital keys that you can find on the net worth it as it would probably save me £140 over buying a disc and key for win 10 pro

depends on how honest the seller is but generally yes. I have bought three at £15 or less and they are all still fine.

You still get free digital key linked to motherboard from Microsoft : 3rd post down : https://forums.mydigitallife.net/thr....74909/page-85

1) Used UUPDL to download 16278 AIO UUP
2) Converted 16278 UUP to ISO with WIM using UUP > ISO by @abbodi1406
3) Used WES to create Workstation SKU WIM from 16278 AIO WIM and replaced the AIO WIM with the newly created Workstation WIM in the ISO created in Step 2
4) Installed fresh 16278 with Product Key 3VKCP-7QN23-D3GQV-MD2VH-XD863 and it activated online with microsft
5) Generated a genuine ticket and made a backup
