Where to Buy Windows 7 or 8 Keys


Recommended Posts

Hey guys,


I am looking to install windows on a new mini computer I am building for a media center.  I don't want to download a pirated copy and I heard you can buy keys for about $30.  Anyone have any experience with this or can recommend a place to buy?

Perhaps too late but you can build a pretty decent media centre using a Raspberry Pi for about $100. The software is free.

That Raspberry is a handy little gadget

Windows 7 comes with Media centre included.
Windows 8 does not and needs another key to unlock the Media Centre.
You can down load genuine ISO of Windows 7 from many sites, but they will need to be activated with a key.
If you search the torrent sites you will easily find a (windows loader) that will activate your windows 7 easily.



MY Media Centre PC runs


Windows 7 64Bit (Haven't tried WIN 8 for Media centre as yet as Win 7 has been brilliant and have not needed to reinstall )


Shark Codecs (to decode the various video and audio formats not supported in Windows)


Media Browser (Add Album art to your folder system)


I also run a Windows Home Server to store my Videos ETC

    • Hi Guys

      As many of you know we have been running now for 16 years and apart from one brief time when we were allowed PayPal, so could use the inbuilt donation function, we have tried to avoid asking for donations. We have certainly avoided being in anyones face about it.

      Sadly that has now changed.

      The forum currently costs around $900 a month to operate. That includes Bangkok and Philippines but PA makes up the vast majority of it. This fee covers forum hosting, image hosting, notification emails and support.

      Before anyone says "its expensive" please be aware we have tried for years to find better for cheaper - it just doesn't exist for the size we are. Also a lot of hosts wont Touch us anyway. Our current host is actually cheaper than the previous one but that brings its own problems.

      Moving on -

      I would like to stress there is NO obligation whatsoever. Also, whatever happens the forum is going no-where!

      Donators can CHOOSE to have their donation listed (probably in this thread or we can make a new one) or to remain anonymous. Likewise they can CHOOSE whether the amount is published or not.

      There is no minimum, or maximum for that matter. ANY donation will be very gratefully received. We are very aware that many members are also having it tough these days.

      We are still unable to promote/post PayPal addresses etc on the forum so would ask that anyone who would like to make a donation to PM me, or ask me here to PM you and we will sort out details via that PM.
