well, if you dont have win10 64bit this would be one way and some parts.
I've replied earlier in this thread..and in another thread where someone asked the same question. Basically you are looking to get Win 7 and be upgrade to win 10 at a lower cost than buying a retail copy of it (by the way you can get win 7, retail version, off of ebay for under 60.00).. however I guess this way would allow you spare parts or you could sell the computer less the hard drive and remembering to removed the factory OEM COA sticker.

However you've been told you can't transfer a OEM to another computer. Which technically is true. However as I pointed out you can move the Hard drive over to a new computer and then have to call MS and tell them that some act of God (or your kid that you are potty training took a leak on your PC) caused you to have to change out the MB and CPU. This may and may not work, depending who you get at MS at that time.The other problem you may have is pulling the Hard drive out and sticking it into another computer, you'll have some driver errors right away, if you can even get past the boot up process and the BSOD.

You could of course go to your favorite torrent website and Search for "Windows 7 ISO" or 8, 8.1, or even 10 and then search for "RemoveWAT 2.2.6" for unlocking Win xp, vista, home/pro/ultimate 7. For the other version of windows you want to look for the latest version of "KMSpico" For win 8 versions and win 10 versions. Yes you'll still be able to get your normal updates from MS as normal. Except for XP which MS said "screw it we're tired of updating this out of date software".

Of course doing the above should only be done on a Test machine for trial/evaluation purposes and you should totally run out and buy Windows if you like it after you have tested it for however many hours, days, weeks, months, years you feel you need to before handing over your cash to MS. And RemoveWAT and KMSPico may (99.9% will) set off a virus alert,being a false positive,just saying.

I should note though... if you decide to install a version of Win 7 on to your machine and think you will simply upgrade to Win 10 using one of the above cracks... scratch that idea. You didn't activate your software with MS verification and MS will tell you to first activate it using the COA Key.. which you don't have, since you are testing the software on a trial basis, be it however long you want to make the trial last. So if you want Win 10, you'll need to install it from the start.. if you want Win 7 and 10.. dual boot (I suggest installing Win 10 THEN Win 7 for dual boot,otherwise unless you know exactly what you are doing Win 10 will simply try to overwrite the win 7 version). Again though if MS offers a free upgrade in the future from win 10 to whatever version ... You'll have to do a clean install most likely...

Now if you already have a OEM version though, you can do what the following sites also suggest. Since you did legally buy the hardware and software and it is yours. You just can't be hassled to call MS and discuss with someone in India how your your dog cocked its leg on your computer or how you and your buddy got totally wasted on Hand grenades during Mardi Gras in New Orleans on Bourbon Street and your buddy came home and blew chunks while laying on your PC .. you may not want to mention you have a dog named Chunks, because that's just wrong and has nothing to do with vomiting on your computer and you upgrading your MB.

So here are the sites:

https://drive.google.com/file/d/0...ljQ28/view
https://drive.google.com/file/d/0...c4VEE/view
https://drive.google.com/file/d/0...ZBWVE/view

Now if you really want to go cheap to get a "OEM Windows COA sticker"... may I suggest Ebay. Which means you'll still need a ISO of the windows version you are using, either a friends retail version or from a Torrent site (Since MS took them off of Digital River). Then you'll need to call the guy in India and explain to them how you and your lover was widely fornicating and you knocked a cheap bottle of Strawberry Hill or Mad Dog 50/50 over on to your computer.

As with all OEM, it is against the EULA. Although, PC does not arrived activated and heat guns remove stickers...

Low-end HDMI cards aren't expensive, even if you don't buy used.

If you zoom in on the pictures, I think there's 3 slots. Be sure to check if it is low-profile height only.

Yes, a PCI-e slot. Make sure you get a low profile card though. I recommend at least an HD 6450 for HTPC use:

HD 6450 cards @ Newegg [newegg.com] (starting at $28 AR).

But I would definitely check craigslist and eBay first.
