I feel I may have made a minor slip with this one, but we'll see.
I bought a copy of Windows XP Pro from a German seller on Ebay. It was advertised as a full copy that will work on any machine. The first problem is that it didn't turn up, and the seller disappeared from Ebay. Cue the dispute, which was the first time that I'd ever raised a dispute on Ebay. However, in an unexpected twist my copy then turned up. Wanting to check that everything was in working order, I proceeded to attempt to install it. And couldn't. Why? Because the copy that I was sent was actually a Dell reinstallation CD, and refuses to work with Bootcamp on my Mac.
Here comes the (suspected) slip. The seller provided the tracking number to PayPal, and as the nature of my dispute has now changed I closed the dispute. I then found out not ten minutes after that you can only raise one dispute per transaction. Now I have attempted to contact the buyer about the issue with my copy of Windows XP, but am not hopeful of a response. If there is no response, can I do anything else through PayPal?
On a side note, if anybody knows how to make a Dell reinstallation CD with Windows XP Pro on it work with Bootcamp, I would appreciate it. Because at the moment it seems like I am faced with finding a copy of a Windows XP Pro install disc and hoping that the product key works.
