    As I say... I have a mac desktop computer but all my other gear is windows. I like the look of windows 10 and want it on my mac so that it boots up as a windows 10 PC. Can anyone help?

    Boot Camp and a Windows 7, 8 or 10 key. (the latter ones are probably cheaper, but then you'll have to spend more time upgrading it, etc.)

    There's no Mac-specific product thing, just make sure you buy a standalone key, not an upgrade key,

    What I did was buy the 8.1 disk at Best Buy, load boot camp, partition my 1 TB drive in half, loaded 8.1 on the second half, then checked all the help threads for what updates are critical to get 10 then updated 8.1 with them. Then I could get my invite icon showing and registered my computer. Then after waiting 2 days, went and upgraded via a USB drive . I didn't do a clean install on my IMac but upgraded to 10. There are several articles on here to help you get it done right.

    FWIW if you have a older Mac I would advise you to make sure you have any and all drivers updated for your Mac before trying to go to 10...because some video cards are throwing errors out.

    Surely it would be cheaper to just get a key?

    (and no, you can't do that. that license is for a single device: that tablet)
