    Where did your friend get the key? Did you also get the installation media from your friend? Enterprise is obtained only through volume licensing.

    Does your friend work for a Microsoft partner, or for a company who uses volume licensing? If so, your version of Windows, while being activated, is still not legitimate.

    I work for a Microsoft partner, and we use Enterprise on our computers at work. However, we do not use them on our own personal computers. We could easily enough; we have the install files and product key available, but it would be violating the ToS.

    Hey Mr. I didn't know that, I just didn't want my windows to expire and so I asked him to help me get a key on line.. I didn't mean to violate any rights.

    Buy a license, don't ask your friends to give you pirated ones.
