What if you want download Win7 SP1 on Vista. You can't because the verification tool won't validate for you to download it.

Contacted the seller and they were surprisingly pro-active about the whole thing.
They are replacing the product and giving me a % refund for my troubles. They responded to my original email asking for help within a few hours.
Seller is Microidea.com.

You are fortunate that the vendor is cooperative. I occasionally will do business with Amazon, but only if the item I need comes directly from them...not one of their sub-vendors. The reason is that Amazon doesn't accept payment via PayPal, so the only recourse available is through Amazon itself. When a sub-vendor is difficult, Amazon may go through the motions of arbitration, but have no teeth in dealing with their sub-vendors.

I just checked microidea out with the BBB.
They have an A- rating. The reason for the '-' is that they haven't been in business long enough to get a higher score, according to to the BBB.
