I have installed a new harddisk on my 2010 Studio 1558 laptop. How do I get an OEM disk for the installation in India?
I spoke to customer care, and the response is :" since the product is no longer supported we cannot help". I even requested if the disk could be bought for a nominal price, and the response is no.
I am not sure why an oem disk cannot be provided to a customer after verifying his genuineness. Any Idea if this disc can be procured from any other source ?
Thanks and regards
