It's important to know if the computer was a Brand/OEM or a Custom. If a Custom was it a Retail version of Windows or an Unbranded OEM version? It may be possible to use an OEM Unbranded version along with the Product Key found on a sticker on the computer case. Branded versions usually can be used only on that brand and sometimes only on certain models within that brand.
