Its provided by the manufacture for a scenario your not using it for?

Bit like saying My insurance is valid if I drive round the Nurburgring when it says it doesn't count for that road. I'm not meeting the conditions of the agreement so I'm not covered. I can still drive my car there but its at my own risk.

No different to saying "How would they know you're using a hooky copy?".

If they did an audit you'd have to prove you own a valid license - yes you could stump up your win 8 key but the set of conditions you agreed to in gaining the key states that you need a legit copy of win 7, certificates 'n' all, and this is where you'd come a cropper.

Bottom line, your key is invalid. No if's and no but's.

Fair Do's although they should make that more clear as at no point was I asked if I'd purchased a machine in the last two months or to provide a windows 7 key.

If I'd known I'd have 'sourced' it from elsewhere and saved myself 25 .

From Microsoft's point of view, they would rather someone pay a few quid for an upgrade from a warez version and have some kind of legit license, rather than just downloading a warez version and not paying anything at all.
