    well, I would say it is legitimate, Whoever gave you the cd has obviously tweaked the OS to not have to ask for the product key, probably made an unattended version of the OS.

    You are lucky, now go to microsoft updates and see if there are any updates you are missing, and read the thread below about some updates that are not offered through microsoft updates :

    there are many ways to make an install cd as you can see by my attachment, mine is an OEM, as I have a dell install cd that I have slipstreamed with sp3. you can search around if you are interested in how to make an install cd, yours appears to be an unattended install cd and all you have to do is insert and choose install and if it says updates then there are some updates incorporated into the cd and possibly drivers, but some drivers are pertinent to a certain brand so there are probably only the original basic drivers incorporated into the cd. the mga diag tool has already confirmed that it is a legitimate copy, :)

    lots of info on the above search page, read through several items and watch a few videos, and then if you have questions let me know, I only have sp3 slipstreamed as I add the updates later and on my dell the drivers have to be installed in a certain order so I do not have them slipstreamed and also my desktop does not allow a usb install of xp, so I have to keep my ISO small enough to be compressed to a cd.

    If you want, you can use nLite tool to integrate those drivers if they are not ;)
