    Why do you say that? I made sure to order from Amazon, and not anyone selling through amazon. Also, I haven't even received my key yet, I just wanted to ensure that when I did use it, that I could use the same key again. In-case my computer blows up or something.

    win8.1.1 enterprise

    i Don't even see why this is a ? ,we were always able to reinstall windows many times ,with all versions of windows ,sometime you might have had to call HOME[MS] to get it to activate ,

    If you did just buy a Key with no media ,when you do get the key you could just use win7 upgrade any time ,or do the full install as suggested above

    hope you enjoy win8 pro when you do finally get it
