    Default Buying over internet

    A quick question if I buy a COA for windows xp/2000 does that mean I can borrow anyone's cd to install or do you have to own cd and coa?

    Cheers

    Not looking to pirate just want to upgrade and have seen coa's for sale.

    Good question.


    From Microsoft:

    How can I prove I am legally licensed?

    For Full Packaged Products, you should be able to produce:

    All physical media supplied when you bought the software, such as the CD-ROM

    The accompanying physical documents

    The End User Licence Agreement (EULA), if supplied as a hard copy

    The Certificate of Authenticity (COA) from the box

    Your invoice - this should list the software title and full details of what was supplied, and the stock-keeping unit number

    For pre-installed software (OEM licences), you should be able to produce:

    The physical documents

    The End User Licence Agreement (EULA), if supplied as a hard copy

    The Certificate of Authenticity (COA) from the PC chassis, the manual covers, the original CDs or their documentation; or separate COA documents

    Your invoice - this should list the software title and full details of what was supplied, and the stock-keeping unit number

    For volume licences, you should be able to produce:

    The Licence Agreement

    The Licence Confirmation document (paper or email)

    Your original invoice, with details of what software was ordered under the agreement


    I think buying a COA would only be vailid if you have a volume licence agreement with MS?
