I'd rather go on Reddit and get the retail Window 10 key for like $30 instead of an OEM one.

You can buy Window keys on Reddit for cheap. Certified MS sellers too

Well, that would save me a bunch of money for my next build.

You could just install all new hardware on the OS you have now and then call MS to get it genuine once again.
If not you can use Reddit. I used it for OS and Office Keys.

I'm still on Windows 7. I'll need a new key surely.

Also. I bought Win 10 Pro on Amazon the other week for £8 something. It needed phoning in, but has been running perfect ever since.

Well, I'm technically disabled according to the state, but I don't need assistance. I'll have to think about that one.

Doesn't matter. I upgraded my sister's system using that and was just fine. No need to call or anything. Was exactly the same as the standard upgrade. Didn't mention it earlier because I thought they took it down
