I got the PC from a guy who has some sort of business with PC's. It was one of the business licenses I believe.
In that case, you need to clarify with the guy you bought it from whether you've got a legal license or not. If yes, then he should be able to provide you with a physical disc or ISO image. If no, then you're SOL unless you want to resort to channels that we aren't allowed to discuss here.
