Yes you did get a Certificate of Authenticity (COA) with your
Dell computer. They don't come in a nice plastic package like they
did with earlier computers. If you look on the side of your Dell
computer, you will see a small little sticker attached to it that has
your Win XP Professional serial number on it. That's the number you
need if you should ever re-install your operating system again.
That's also your COA.
