Kinguin: https://www.kinguin....sional-oem-key/

 

Recommend using their Buyer Protection ($5.97).

I haven't yet purchased Windows 10. With Windows 7, I downloaded the ISO file and burned it to a bootable DVD.

 

Hang on a sec ...

 

Here, from Kinguin's "Help"

 

Windows 10:

Go to this page.

Click the Download tool now button

Open the USB/ISO media creation tool

Use it create installation media (detailed instructions are provided under the Using the tool to create installation media tree)

I've ordered from them a few times now with nary a hitch. First heard of them in PCWorld I believe. Just be sure to buy the optional buyer protection in case someone in this open market sells you a bad key.

Thanks everyone also glad you added the thought of getting an SSD. So far so good! Windows 10 is installing to the SSD and no problems so far.

I keep getting CPU fan error on boot-up. I think its just not detecting the fan. Ill just make some adjustments in BIOS. Should be fine.

Is the CPU fan spinning? Is it spinning the right way? (Sucking hot air away from the CPU is the way all of mine work).

Are the blades on the CPU fan actually spinning?

 

If so, try resetting the CMOS/BIOS settings to factory default and reboot.
