You have to have valid _retail_ license of whatever windows version parts of 
which you want to use with Wine.

You can only use OEM version if you using the same hardware your license 
came with.

This makes completely impractical for anyone to use such a setup. Wine is 
made to avoid having windows all together, not requiring it.
