    Hmm I don't want it to be deactivated. Pirate windows is out of the question nowadays, rather go legit.

    So whats the cheapest not including ebay? £84?

    Piracy has always been out of the question as far as HEXUS is concerned.

    I have deleted one post that was advocating price or keys of 'dubious' origin. Any further suggestions of that nature will lead to account suspension.

    Any particular reason that you want it on USB? If OEM will meet your requirements (and you should be aware of the differences between OEM and retail) then you can save about a tenner by buying OEM DVD - you can then create a USB key for install using the media creation tool

    (I've not searched too hard, just went to https://www.scan.co.uk/search.aspx?q=windows+10 for pricing)

    Re: Cheapest place for Win 10 USB retail.

    Could you buy win 7 on DVD (IIRC one supermarket was selling them for £12 last year) then upgrade to win 10 before the 29th July?
    2nd computer gigabyte P965ds3p, 7770 E2140@2.9ghz, corsair HX520 6 years stable, replaced now with E8400@3.9ghz and will overclock more when I'm bored.

    I did think about that but it's a new build and it might not be ready in time.

    Re: Cheapest place for Win 10 USB retail.

    Seeing the prices on that link makes me glad I bought Win8 when it was first released. MS always seem to have a great introductory price for their new OSes so that's when I usually buy (did it for vista, which I got cheap due to all the hate, win 7 and 8) - works out a bargain.

    Re: Cheapest place for Win 10 USB retail.

    Vista retail (not OEM) was £30, Win7 Home Premium (not OEM) was £45, Pro (again not OEM) was £85 - I got a bunch of copies which I sold on so it was free. Win8 was around £60 I think for a transferable license, so again non-OEM.

    You could install it on a Virtual Machine while you don't finish your build, upgrade it to W10, so that the W7 key is linked, and then when it's ready you can deactivate the VM and activate it on the final build.
