    The best way to know if a key is genuine is to know its provenance - whether the source is reliable or not. If you bought just a key, then the chances are that it's not going to be genuine, unless you bought it from MS or Digital River.

  • Hi elvis.parkinson,

      We have no customer available way to check just a product key.  The best way to determine if the key is valid or not is to use it to install Windows and then go to http://microsoft.com/genuine/validate to run a validation check.

     

    Thank you,

    Might I suggest that you
    1) look at the date of the post you are responding to
    2) learn the capabilities of the users of this forum, and the MS owner of the forum
     
    BEFORE posting such a response?
