    And/or phone MS - you might get some sympathy/help towards a deal for an upgrade.
  4. Disk failed multiple times ms might help it's a shot :) but I stole the copy myself from an it guy at a local college kinda??? I copied it while he was out of the office can they tell the difference between a clone and the original copy???
  5. also important information the computer is my roommates while i feel for his situation I am unwilling to spend enough money for an os to help
