So I guess I bought an OEM version of windows 10 on Amazon and there's isn't an activation key associated with it. Has anybody done this? If so is there a way to activate it other than buying a $200 key?

There are cheaper keys around but there is no option other than using a legitimate one.

Those aren't legit, lol. It's people selling keys from volume licenses. It will activate, but it's not actually legal.

@kawi6rr The key will work if you find and buy the original computer that it is intentioned to.

I bought it brand new from Amazon you would think a key would come with it.

What computer are you trying to use this windows on? Like mentioned above, just get a win 10 pro license key from Ebay for about $5 if you need a key. Or contact amazon for a refund.
