First problem is the retailer sold you an "illegal" version of Windows.
Sooner or later you're going to run into some sort of problem with it that's
going to be a deal-breaker (if this isn't it) and you're going to be stuck
buying another copy. I'd suggest you return it and/or report the retailer to
MS.
