Solved.

“It's unwise to pay too much, but it's worse to pay too little. When you pay too much, you lose a little money - that's all. When you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything, because the thing you bought was incapable of doing the thing it was bought to do. The common law of business balance prohibits paying a little and getting a lot - it can't be done. If you deal with the lowest bidder, it is well to add something for the risk you run, and if you do that you will have enough to pay for something better.”

    Does Microsoft not sell what you need?

    What's wrong with the usual OEM Windows license that it sold through many reputable sites, including the New Egg link that Vrika just gave you?

    I believe the problem is the insane price...

    Found a site.  Got the key 20 bucks.

    It's hard to imagine that it is legal. (of course, now I'm curious about the site...)   :)

    It's not illegal. Many of those websites buy versions meant for poor countries, or sold through some insanely good mass discount, and then resell those and operate completely legally.

    Other of those websites aim to scam you, or use stolen credit card data to buy keys and then sell those keys to you.

    Buying from one of those websites is risky. But if you're ready to take a risk of losing your money here's Windows 10 professional OEM for less than 7$:
