Doesn't the COA contain the Windows OS details? I thought it would. You could do another thing too. You could check the model of the computer and then match the computer back to the OS on the manufacturer's website. For example, if you have a Dell 2400C computer, then the OS will have to be Windows XP. You could use the service tag too (if you have it).

(I am guessing that the only conflict you have would be whether you need to install windows 98 or 2000 or xp. I am hoping (for your sake) that you dont have to hassle yourself with the older OS models. )
