  • Thanks for your question spydecam.  I dont know where your friend got their CD, so I can't say for sure.  MSDN licenses you to use Windows 7 for development purposes only, but if the key works, using your friends CD rather than an ISO you've downloaded from MSDN should not cause a licensing issue. Unless, of course, you're doing non-development activities, in which case it would.
