Hi

In theory yes.

 

Practically speaking you would need to ask Microsoft in the Country concerned.

 

The OS must never have been initiated.

@Mr_Arthor 

My own experience is different ...

 

When you go to order a PC from HP, you can SOMETIMES get one that comes with FreeDOS instead of Windows.  That is lower in price because the Windows license cost has already reduced the price of the PC.
