Re: Avoiding paying Windows license in the US

If you already have it, the license was already paid by HP.

If your point is simply to not *accept* the license on loading up the
computer, that's easy. You can get a GNU/Linux install live USB and boot
off of that directly and erase Windows so it will never even run the
first time.

Someone else may know more than me on this, but I do vaguely recall that
there's possibly some way to demand a refund from Microsoft when you
prove that you never used or accepted the Windows license. I'd clarify
that right away. But if it may not be possible or practical.
