  • It will activate online.  If you need to activate by phone you will be prompted to select your region and you can choose to activate in USA if you want.

    Shouldn't be a problem - but make sure that you buy from reputable dealers, as sources such as eBay are more likely to be selling counterfeits!

    shouldn;t be a problem or must not be? i am investing 200-300$ in that product so:)
    thanks for suggestion about reputable dealers ,online Microsoft store is a better option (in USA) .As in Pakistan unfortunately there is no microsoft online store as well as only OEM versions available of Microsoft.

  • Then buy from the Microsoft Store so you can download genuine Windows and key.  Read the posts on this forum.  There are hundreds of counterfeit Windows analysed here and where people bought them.  It is a BIG problem for buyers just trying to save a little money.
