    As a rule you must purchase at least five licenses for Microsoft products to qualify for one of several different Volume Licensing programs.  Have a look at this page for more info: http://www.microsoft.com/resources/sam/what_basics_licensingWhat.mspx

    If the computers need "fixing" because they have nongenuine installations of Windows, then Volume Licensing is not appropriate because Volume Licenses are Upgrade-only licenses, and if your computers have pirated copies of Windows installed you need either OEM licenses or retail licenses to Get Genuine.
