Yeah, who knows who owned it previously or what OS it may have had at one time or another. Do you even know if your product key works to activate a clean installation of Windows 7?
If you know that the key works on Windows 7, I'd be inclined to download a Windows 7 ISO, burn it, and install from it. I'm assuming you don't have a regulation Windows 7 install disc.
