I have to agree with user 'Anon22' that Search has become horrible and was way more useful in WinXP. Whomever decided to change this for the worse should be fired ... out of a cannon - into the sun!
"The product key on a laptop does not use the media that Microsoft provides via MSDN, Retail or to Enterprises. You need to get the media from the OEM so that the product key works."
Sorry windev, but that isn't the case. You can use MSDN media to install laptops with the key on the Microsoft sticker on the laptop case. You MAY have to do activation-by-phone in some cases though.
