    No!
    Unless it came as a sealed pack with the Sticker, and the disk, and a paper copy of the license, etc, it's very definitely NOT genuine or legal. Even if it is a genuine full pack, it's not a valid installation unless installed by the manufacturer of the machine involved for sale to a customer.

  • For $300 you can buy a full license copy of Windows 7 Professional from the Microsoft Store and never have to worry about its genuiness.  A COA key is put on a computer case by the manufacturer as an emergency key for a preinstalled copy of Windows.  Preinstalled copies cannot be used on any other computer.  The only way to buy such a copy of Windows is to buy the whole computer.  Get your money back.
