HP is not responsible for the OP's problem. Except for XP
downgrades on their business systems, HP ships all systems
with Vista, and all necessary drivers and support software
installed, and will do the same with Win 7 when it's released.
The dealer sold the OP a defective system with all the original
software removed. Also, it's not legal to sell a system with a
beta or RC Windows version installed. I'm sure both HP and
MS would be interested in this retailer's activities.
