So heres the story:
I just bought a new Dell Studio 15 laptop that is eligible for the free windows 7 upgrade (one of the main reasons i purchased), once the laptop arrived i headed over the Dell registration site (http://win7.dell.com) put in all my details. However, on the second page of the registration, where you enter your service tag from the laptop you click a validate buttom. Upon doing this nothing happens, it thinks for 2 seconds and the page stays the same and the registration can not be completed.
Now if i select Australia and get to the same position, at least it says the tag is not recognized in the database (i ordered over 10 days ago). Considering this only happens when using the New Zealand option, the fact i have tried on both internet explorer and firefox, and that my java is up to date. I think there is some issue with the website. You can also barely even tell customer support about the problem because the description box cant process more than a few lines of text.
Has anyone else had this issue? Is there any suggestions about ways of getting around this? I hate Vista so much and all the talk about how good Windows 7 is just makes me angrier. You can even check for yourself if you want. If you go to the website and make up some fake details and enter a random number for the service tag you will see the issue i get even when using a real one.
