Dell Vista Upgrade

  Genius1 19:04 27 Dec 2006

I ordered and have recieved a Dell Dimension 9200 desktop after 26/10/06 (so I'm in the Vista 'upgrade window'). If I go to click here, and enter my service tag and click 'Continue', I get the message 'Your system does not qualify for the upgrade to Windows Vista etc.'.

Has anyone else experienced problems with this site? Will I have to telephone rather than do it over the internet?

Thanks in advance.

used same site a couple of days ago entered service tag no and it went through the pages no problem, did not have to speak to anyone, suggest you contact dell and ask their advice

Yes, I think it'll have to be customer services.
