re: No COA install only tool, yet?!!!!!!! RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • The techs at PC Club upgraded my computer with a new motherboard, cpu, and hard drive.  They installed XP Pro using a volume licensed copy of their XP Pro saying it came with the system.  The store went out of business about four months ago.  I just want to keep my computer environment in tact. I have XP Office and a lot of business analysis software installed.  It would take me a week to reinstall it all and my data. 

    It seems really petty to require a re-install when a user has been duped by a reseller instead of just buying and applying a COA.  I thought you had 50,000 programmers in India, can't at least one of them write you some code to fix this?

    Do you have your original Windows XP installation disk and the COA that went with it?
