In addition, the source of the installation is not what matters for licensing. I can use a retail copy to install Windows on my machine, but then use a volume license key and activate Windows.
That is what matters, how Windows was activated, not what source was used for the install. At this time we do not report on that either, but we are investigating what it would take and if it is a possibility. Thanks.
