    I'm not quite 100% sure, but I think you won't find them anywhere.
    I said so because you're the first who talk about it. Or more precisely - so far I have never seen something about Windows 10 OEM keys.
    Here are people who know everything and always, simply You must wait a bit.

    : " Other Info You can find OEM keys in the XP/Vista/Windows 7/Windows Server Sub-Forums. Certs and SLICS can be found in the BIOS Mods Sub-Forum."

    This is what is written in the OEM bios readme.....

    I remember that some years ago there was a sub forum with link to iso image file and also oem keys........the oem keys will not work if you not have an original environment or a modded one.

    There are no vendor specific OEM generic keys for w10. They became unique since OA3.0 AKA MSDM keys in the BIOS' ACPITable (w8)....

    Only OA2.x (and actually OA1.x at winXP) supports that. Latest version can activate server 2016 but neither w8.x nor w10.

    So there's not yet the possibility to activate an OEM Win10 release with SLIC and BIOS mod? I got a test environment in vmWare workstation 15 with modded BIOS so usually with cert and OEM key the OS is activated (server edition and old win OS).
    Other solutions? If I bought an electronic licence and i clone the machine it is still licensed? Usually I use a machine (I need it activated and with all functionalities) for not more than 1 day and then I must start again from 0.....this is the reason for me to have an easily activated version.

    Windows 10 doesn't use SLIC, it can use a MSDM (but, as said before, it's hardware specific).

    What type of key is the key you bought?

    Why don't you just use a KMS solution or a HWID for activating 10, both are 100% free.

    To say it with different words, the OEM:SLP channel used for Vista and 7 got killed by MS for Windows 8 and above, for client SKUs. Only the Servers still support it. That's why there is not (and will never be) a Windows Loader for 8.x or 10.x...
