It’s utterly shocking that a sealed Microsoft Product doesn’t function. Windows 10 . Then had to call up Microsoft tech support for help. Pathetic service and product. The pen drive which had the widow’s 10 ISO gave error messages of files being corrupted and missing. God help Amazon and Microsoft. I would not even give a single star.
Sealed windows 10 pro package, installed the os and tried to activate it, but apparently someone else is using my product key, also it cant even upgrade to 1809, the october update. Had to download it separately(4.7gb) then had to format the usb stick to install it. This update was required since nvidia 419 driver isnt compatible with the one provided(1511). I tried calling microsoft support to activate windows, and even after 10 tries and an hour of waiting the call service representitives were always busy.
I am incredibly disappointed and also frustrated.
I recommend against buying this.
Beware of this seller, E-merge solutions
The memory stick is genuine (at least from what I can tell) but everything around it is counterfeit. Product key, even the box! It looks like someone cut the windows flag out with a blunt knife rather than press cut! Product key is also blocked due to piracy. You’re best off spending more money and buying a genuine copy from Microsoft directly. DO NOT BUY
Error message “The product key entered does not match any of the Windows images available for installation. Enter a different product key.” happens when installing from the included USB stick and using the code on the printed card. UPDATE: I completed the install by saying I didn’t have a product key. After installation I went to Update & Security, Activation, Change product key. This allowed me to successfully enter the supplied product key. It now shows Edition = Windows Pro Education, and Activation = Windows is activated with a digital licence. I have since wiped the system and reinstalled using a freshly made USB installation stick. The process was quicker (the USB stick being more up to date) but the result was the same, an Education version. If that’s what you want/are OK with, then this will do the job. I don’t know if the install hiccup is a product problem or a typical Microsoft annoyance, but it seems to be surmountable without having to phone Microsoft.
Not a retail key and doesn’t mention anything about being an OEM key. I used the key to install windows but it wouldn’t recognize the key once it was installed to activate windows. It kept saying that it had already been used on another device which is strange since it was the first time I used it. A long wait on the phone with the windows activation key revealed the code was a “windows 10 downgrade key” which seems unlikely based on the symptoms and the windows guy was probably inept. Either way it was useless and I had to send it back for a refund which hasn’t been processed yet. I would avoid this at all costs.
