So to be legal in Microsoft's eyes is sometimes a pain.  This is what 
you need to prove legality:  Certificate of Authenticity (COA) it is the 
seal on the manual or sticker that is put on the side of the computer. 
 End user licence aggreement (EULA) usually contained on/in the booklet 
that comes with the software.  To have the installation media as well is 
good and it would also be helpful to have the invoice or receipt of 

Microsoft does *NOT* allow you to actually transfer a licence from one 
computer to another.  So OEM copies of the software will not make us 
legal (unless VA actually ever sold windows along with the box).
