But it is needed if you need to do a fresh install for whatever reason:thumbsup:


When they ring you kick their butts Sass

I got delievred the wrong laptop. 9 days and counting waiting on them sorting it, Contacting bank today to start a chargeback (hopefully Abbey will support it)
But...on topic...the laptop they DID deliver has its coa under the battery. Look there, or under the panel where you install ram
