Can I use the installer without purchasing the Windows license (product key)?

Can I use the installer if I don’t have my own Windows installation media?
Yes, you can. Lion-Tech Installer will download all the necessary files for you from an online source.

I don’t own a Windows license. Where can I buy one?
You can either go to the Microsoft online store, your local Microsoft reseller or install Windows in evaluation mode. The option to purchase the Windows license will then be offered to you during the Windows activation process.
Can I use the Installer on more than one Mac?
No, once installed, the Installer is bound to the serial number of your Mac. You can however reinstall Windows or upgrade to higher editions on this machine without any limitations.
Will my Mac’s warranty stay covered after using the Installer?
Absolutely. Lion-Tech Installer won't affect your warranty in any way.
What Windows version should I choose?
Windows 8.1 offers many new features and faster and cleaner performance. Windows 7 suits more for the conservative or backwards-compatibility needs. On Retina Macs we always suggest to go with Windows 8.1 or Windows 10.
What Windows edition does the Installer install?
If you already own a Windows license, you will be prompted to insert the product key and select the corresponding edition of Windows which will be installed. If you do not own a Windows license, Windows 10, Windows 8.1 or Windows 7 Home Premium will be installed. You could afterwards upgrade to any of the higher editions.
Are 32-bit versions of Windows supported?
Only 64-bit versions of Windows are supported. 64-bit versions provide better forward compatibility and better performance on all current 64-bit Macs.
