I bought a Medion notebook MD98200 here in Spain. The product ID for Vista on the casing was not accepted for activation; I have tried the automated teleohone line but it refers only to XP. I await a reply from Medion, but wondered if anyone else has had this problem? I'd love to test out Vista if only I can access it!
Are you living in Spain or just on holiday? If you're on holiday you could wait until you get back to the UK and use the 0800 number that I used to activate someone's who didn't have an Internet connection. If you go to the activation screen, there should be an option that says "other ways to activate". From there you can choose to activate by phone and when you tell it your location it will give a list of numbers to use. The one I used didn't say XP or Vista it just refered to it as "Microsoft product". You then had to enter a set of 5 or 6 digit numbers into the phone then the woman reads back another set of 5 or 6 digit numbers that you type in the boxes underneath. If you're living in Spain, the local Spanish number that you use should still use the same process. It just might be best to use a number that comes up on Vista's phone activation screen because these should work for Vista.
