    Brilliant! Ok would you suggest purchase in the store (in VM) or website?

    It's probably more convenient to use the store app than the MS website, but otherwise it shouldn't matter. Or you can save a few bucks on amazon (currently $180,99 if you're in the US). Wherever you get the key, make sure that it gets linked to your Microsoft account in Windows.

    Fast Software [https://fastsoftware.co.uk] do Pro keys for £30. Work well and never had one expire or not activate. Currently using one for the ARM build and working perfectly.

    At that price it's definitely not a retail key. At best it's OEM, at worst it's a volume license. Of course the risk of getting a bad key is somewhat mitigated by the keys being very cheap.

    Does seem suspicious and too good to be true.

    Holy cow. I honestly just tried this and it worked on my M1 + Parallels Tech Preview + Windows ARM Insider Preview

    I used an old Windows 7 license key I had and it was accepted

    I was able to activate it with a Windows 10 Education license (which my university is giving out for free)! Once I entered the product key, the note at the bottom of the screen changed from "Windows 10 Pro Insider Preview" to "Windows 10 Education Insider Preview".

    I'm using M1 + Parallels Tech Preview + Windows ARM Insider Preview, and I need to activate this windows version.
    Anyone could help me? There's a SOLD OUT warning in that website when I try to purchase a Pro Key. Pleaseeee!

    I'm confused. I thought Windows on Arm was a beta application?? I did not think you could run the current WOA builds permanently??
    So why do I have to use one of my licenses, or purchase a new license to run beta software temporarily?

    After downloading and installing Windows for Arm Insider Preview can I turn off developer preview and use regular Windows for Arm instead?

    Sort of, but not really. You can leave the Insider Program and wait for regular releases to catch up with the Insider build you have currently installed. You can't install the currently available regular Windows on ARM, though.
