Windows 7 & XPP Downgrade RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi!

    For one of our customer we have ordered a new Fujitsu Lifebook A530 pre-installed with W7PRO 64-bit.
    Normally Fujitsu provides (twinload) dvd's 1x Win7 + 1x XPP.
    However for this model (A530) Fujitsu does not provide a (twinload) XPP media-set and after calling (Fujitsu) partner support they informed me that for this model there is no XPP twinload DVD.

    We tried to install XPP with other Fujitsu XPP DVD's (for other types of computers) but validation fails.

    What to do next? I have yet not called Microsoft to activate it by phone.
    According to: http://www.microsoft.com/oem/en/licensing/sblicensing/pages/downgrade_rights.aspx i have to explain the situation and it gets activated?

    Can you please inform us what to do, call Microsoft or "stalk" Fujitsu?

    Best regards,
