XP x64 edition

Posted: 03-11-2009, 02:24 AM
I purchased it online, and received a silver and green dvd labeled "Volume
License Product Key Required"
I'm told this is normal XP Pro x64 and to just install it and use the key on
the plain white paper case it came in.
No COA, no other paperwork, no packaging, just a plain white paper cd case
with a typed key on a white label.
Is this thing genuine?
It is reflective, has holograms, no paper label on the disc, Microsoft
Licensing in holograms around outside edges.

All text on cd is...
> Microsoft Windows XP Professional
> x64 Edition
> (Volume License Product Key Required)
> June 2006
> Systems
> Windows
> Client:
> Business
> Not for retail or OEM distribution or for resale
> End Item Part No.
> E85-02830
> then a UPC bar code
> Microsoft Licensing
Should I RMA it? Install and use it if it's genuine? What?

Return it for a refund. Its likely non-genuine since it is a volume license
version. No COA - its definitely bogus!

Posted on Microsoft.community.xppx64 boards.
Filled out a piracy report.
Got an RMA from http://www.bluesurfsoftware.com
Now the page
http://www.bluesurfsoftware.com/Prod...uctCode=MS1023 says
"Product does not exist."
