Windows 7 Home Premium Retail License Key Only

Many sources are offering a "Windows 7 Home Premium Retail License Key Only" saying I could use a previously purchased DVD on a second PC with this separate key. I can't find any reference to this at the Microsoft site. Is this legal?

  1. Having never come across anything like this myself, I would be a little skeptical about it. Where are these sources you mentioned?

    I saw it at Elecsurf Computers. They were linked from a NexTag search. Here's an address: http://elecsurf.com/win7h.html

  3. Given the price, I'm even more skeptical. When you buy a copy of Windows, 95+% of the price is for the serial. Given the volume they ship, Microsoft can produce the disks for about $1 a piece...

    I sure thought it was fishy. But since MS withdrew the family pack, I've been looking for any way to save some money.

  5. You just want a license that you can use three times.

  6. I'm wondering if they're using Technet keys. If so, it's totally against the Technet license agreement and if Microsoft finds out about it they could invalidate all the keys.
  7. It may be possible yo buy OEM keys without the disc (although I have not checked), but not retail ones.
