    Download the MSDN Ultimate iso, delete the ei.cf and you can install Pro too, use the key for activation (if it works at all).

    Can you activate Windows 10 with an OEM license?

    Depends on where you are (legislation). In Germany, for example, you CAN transfer System Builder keys.

    if present in BIOS or in a sticker, yes, and it will actívate automatically when you connect to internet.

    John Sutherland:

    I'm one of many who will be sticking with Win7 for a long time. Win10 is just too much spyware and too wonky.(See latest update mess.) I used XP safely for 3 years after updates ended, and I can do it again. I moved to 7 only because my online work demanded it.

    Use DAZ Loader 2.2.2! Works!

    Did the vendor not provide a link for the download?

    Yes I had an old copy from a few years ago and it still registered windows 7 OEM just fine

    I'm with you on that, but was forced to go to 10 for hardware support. So been working with ten for about a month now. What a mess to deal with.
