    Hey guys,

    I really don't have money at this moment, therefore im looking for the safest, cheapest and legit way to get windows through bootcamp.

    I have thought on this options i would like to know if it is actually possible:

    - download windows...from microsoft or some other place as a demo version(mind telling me the link if it is possible). AND through a friend pc laptop, copy its serial.

    Again, is this way actually posible and legit?

    If you guys know of another option, please tell me! :)

    ps: im scared of installing a pirated version of windows my new mba, despite being in Peru (piracylandia).

    Thx in advance guys!

    That's piracy, you need to purchase a license for windows and windows go through an activation process as well, to stop people from doing what you're looking to do.
