Recent versions of Windows OS have an embedded (encrypted) list of COA license codes.. which the 'user' will not be able to find. For each run or stamping of the individual OS disks, a list of probable COA license codes are included. If the "match" of included license codes does not mate to the input of a COA, the installation will abort!
The only way to obtain an authentic issue of an OS install is when it includes that COA tag with the license number. The above information refers to individual sales of an OS install package. For businesses or large corporations, a package may include only two or three install disks.. plus a page (or two) of COA license numbers for install. Up to 100 individual installs can be made from the same stamping run. After that, the master pressing disks are destroyed. And any unsold license codes.
No, you cannot duplicate or "burn" a copy of the install disk. Certain hidden files will not copy over. But you could still make a backup copy for reference or daily use, excluding those certain files.
As evasive noted, the software and license are a dedicated pair.
F@H.. to solve mankind's maladies.. in our lifetimes!
