Please go here to read about COA.
The license for an Operating system does not live on.
If you buy one of these computers you will have to buy an Operating system as well as a hard drive.
You can replace the hard drive and reinstall the Operating system if you are the original owner, But not if the computer is changing hands.
Don't fall victim to stand-alone COAs
If you receive offers for COAs as stand-alone items, be aware that these offers are highly suspect and can put you at risk. To fall victim to stand-alone COAs offers means that you may have wasted valuable money and you will not have a legal license to run the software. The best way for you to protect yourself is to purchase software from a familiar, reputable reseller. The Anti-Counterfeiting Act of 2003 makes it a criminal offense for dishonest resellers to distribute stand-alone COA labels.

How they 'got' me was buy selling the Card dirt-cheap, then making the Shipping/Handling very dear.
This is a strategy of many e-bay sellers.
Glad we could help.
