As long as that Windows is being installed on one computer, it doesn't matter if it's used or not. Just use the phone-activation service. Also if this is a laptop from an OEM, you should just be able to do a factory reset without having to activate anything.

Use the Jellybean Keyfinder to pull the key out of your running windows install.

http://www.magicaljellybean.com/keyfinder/

Scroll to bottom of page and take free version, choose custom install and uncheck the three checks. :mrgreen:

Remember, you can only have that key running one machine and not two!
