Hey Tom's Hardware community!

I am working on starting my own PC Repair Company and one of the services I'm planning on offering is Windows 10 installation.

I just want to make sure that Microsoft is okay with installing their software for-profit. I looked into their terms of use and I couldn't find anything, but just wanted to verify.

Thank you!

Basically, buying a key, and installing it for them for a fee.
Not re-selling the key's at a higher price or anything, I would charge them retail for the key.
Given a known valid Windows license, you're then just providing a service with the install.
No different than charging $20 to install a RAM stick.

'known valid' = not from a cheap key seller.

Define "for profit".
Exactly what do you mean?
