Two reasons to hate WGA RRS feed

  • Question

  • Many reasons to be pissed off, two months ago I bought new Packard Bell iStart Desktop Computer (cheap) :) with pre-installed Vista Basic OEM, and haven´t installed anything hardware related stuff eg, new Hard Drive or RAM, is it possible that some has taken Product Key from computer before it was bought (IT CANNOT BE ACTIVATED) and computer came without cd´s. Customer support in packard bell didn´t help much.

    Sorry about WGA :>
