I have an official MS COA label that I found with a dead tower I tried to repair. The OS was not identified. The label had been cut. Is there anyway I can tell which OS , XP, VISTA, ect this COA represents? In the past I have used my DELL cd to load XP onto HPs and others. As long as the host tower was also XP as indicated on the COA I could use THAT key to activate the OS. I reused that key several times on various non DELLS. Any help in identifying the OS that this COA represents would be helpful.

have you tried typing coa numbers & letters into google search to see what comes up?
No. If that works will that give me the OS VERSION? What search terms should I use?
it might give you the version but don't know as never had to try it. try "ms coa" plus the 5 groups of numbers & letters in the google search.
