Is G2A safe to buy windows 8.1 from, and how do I install it from G2A?

buy it from reddit.com/r/microsoftsoftwareswap :) Much cheaper and reliable! Make sure to buy from s5ean, he is simply the best.

no it is not

 

G2A is not a trusted reseller

 

Hell, it's based in Hong Kong.

I am going to reinstall windows on my PC and I was wondering if G2A was safe to buy from and how would I obtain an ISO for it/ how would I install it, I was looking at this https://www.g2a.com/microsoft-windows-8-1-standard-32-64-bit-oem-cd-key-global.html

 

G2A is quite reliable, I'v bought many Windows 8.1 keys from them without any issues. Just get the "G2A Shield" and you'll be fine + purchase through Paypal if you can for the extra bit of protection.

In any case of getting windows for under the asking price is sketchy tbh

Do you need a disc to install it?

say what you want, but I have bought 10+ keys from s5ean and they have all worked wonderfully. If your key ever manages to break he will replace it no questions asked :)

Have you actually ever used G2A? If no I don't think you can comment on them.

 

Most of the products aren't actually sold by G2A, but other sellers that have put up a key for G2A to sell it on their website.

G2A is fine, I always buy from people with loads of feedback, I've spent hundreds of dollars there and never had any issues whatsoever.

No, just download the ISO, when it asks for CD key, input the key. Easy!
