Search Microsoft support site to see if you can locate the SKU#; it should have region/country/languages supported.

Yes, you have Dell's OEM version, customized for its motherboards, BIOS, and features. I seriously doubt you could successfully install it on another board. It sounds like your vendor may be less than honest. If the deal sounds too good to be true - it probably is. I wish you better luck on your next attempt.
