    Hello all,

    I'm setting up a new computer at my parent's and I need to activate Windows 10

    The activation process can be automatic or fully manual (provided there's a good howto) but once done, it has to work for years: what would you advise?

    A shady $1 licence key from eBay or a KMS emulator?
    Or something else?



    I've made my USB stick with the media creation tool but not installed it yet, so I can still change it if you advise me something different.

    Well, that one was about Office in the Office section.


    Here, I'm taking Windows. The answer may be the same but I had to ask...

    Does Windows need conversionR fromfrrom e to volume as well?

    I wasn't sure (although I activated a Windows retail with msguide's KMS).

    So Windows media creation tool, then KMS_VL_ALL, right?
