    Nope not new but what a lot of retailers have done (and still do) if you order it alone is ship it to you with a USB cable or an old piece of hardware.

    In May I purchased an OEM copy of Windows XP pro from Tiger Direct without any other qualifying purchase. I have also ordered an OEM copy from New Egg late last year without a "qualifying" purchase. So you should be okay.

    OEM is for system builders, so they want those people to buy it and not other people.
