I have it installed I just need to activate it. Thanks guys. Not sure where this post belongs but you guys seem to know a lot about bootcamp.
EDIT!- Windows 8.1
I'm not 100% sure, but I don't think you can just buy a key; you need to buy a retail copy.
See FAQ from Microsoft here: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-gb/windows/get-windows-product-key#get-windows-product-key=windows-7
Have you tried activating your copy of Windows - does it give you some options to buy a key?
By the way, if it helps, you may want to seek answers to this in other Microsoft-related/specific forums/subreddits - Bootcamp has no relation to registering Windows.
Yes it gives me the option to purchase a new key but they're quite expensive. I saw somewhere you could get them cheaper but I can't find where.
Tried eBay? There will probably be some scams but also some legit resellers - just check the reviews etc
I don't suppose you're a university student with access to Dreamspark?
no but could you explain anyways?
I have access to dreamspark. Is there windows there to download?
Depends on the institution. My university gives Windows 7, 8 and 8.1 through Dreamspark.

This is exactly what I was looking for! However, I managed to find another free alternative that I'm not going to elaborate too much on...
something seems a bit didgy about them, do you have any idea where theyre getting these keys so cheaply?
