Several of the forum comments mention fresh installs. So possible, but fairly unlikely.

Fresh installs from what media though? "Pre-activated" Windows ISOs are freely available on any torrent search site with who-knows-what added.

That is a main issue with people who don't know how to look for the right ones. But I get my images by matching the MSDN MD5 hashes (I am not on 10 yet, even though digital river is gone the MSDN images are still out there)
