no that would be illegal unless you have a coa that is for multiple computers such as being in the parnership program
an oem coa will work, but you need an oem windows install cd (not a manufacturer one) all three of my computers are running oem windows from old comps that i have traded into work or built. my laptop has home off of a toshiba, my one desktop has pro off a dell, and my new comp has home off of an hp. i know it works and i've never had a problem with microsoft yet. problem is you need a normal xp oem disk, which if you don't have makes for some problems.
