1. Help with 2000 Professional UPC's and Part Nos.
I will be building my next computer shortly and attempted to access
Microsoft's site to research UPC & Mfg. Part No. data, as well as
product feature differences for Windows 200, the OS we will be
installing. I don't know if it was because I use a Netscape browser
(that would be SO Microsoft to detect which browser I am using) but I
could not get more than a couple of the pages to load -- indeed the
browser crashed numerous times.
May I explain what I am looking for generally and, perhaps, someone
could provide a link to ONE Microsoft site that has product features
*AND PART NOS.* for this OS assembled on one page. I'll make myself a
gin and tonic and launch IExplorer -- on my (Pentium 100) 56k
connection, a browser that moves at g.l.a.c.i.a.l speed, or I would
reattempt the Microsoft search on it myself.
What I'm looking for is not only the Microsoft Part No., but also the
*descriptive* designation for the following OS:
WINDOWS 2000 PROFESSIONAL
Full, Heavy, Retail Shrinkwrapped Box
Specifically I am looking for whichever UPC codes relate to the full
2000 versions that come WITH ALL THE MANUALS -- in other words, the
full monty. Not an OEM. Not an upgrade. Not cheap "online
documentation." The one with all the physical books; all the CD's;
and an install that will be laid on a brand new, freshly-formatted
80-gig hard drive that has never seen an OS in its life. This will
not be a network computer, it will be a standalone.
Please be specific because numerous vendor sites that I have visited
are ambiguous in their product descriptions, and more than one has
listed the SAME Microsoft part number . . . in reference to different
products at different prices!
Better yet, I'd love to avoid the interfering Microsoft site
altogether and locate an ~.org site that has all this data without the
I apologize to the group for the length of my post, but I spent 12
hours on this yesterday and went to bed with a headache having
ascertained nothing that distinguishes Microsoft's product line.
Thank you for your help, and let's leave it on the Usenet for others
who may need this kind of Pre-Sale guidance.
