Those Enterprise versions come with gold plated, velvet glove support. I'd head back to your IT or company and get them to support it and since it is the very expensive Enterprise version, if the IT is stumped remember they do have front line, better than average phone support too.

I wish I could afford this version.

How can that be?

All Enterprise versions are great things to have due to the price paid for them. The only time I find no-support is when it's been pirated or obtained in odd ways.

The only good news I can offer for those is that Microsoft may want to hear how you came to have this on your PC.

Sorry but for reasons you may want to ask about, you need to figure out why an Enterprise version is on your PC. It can cause many troubles as Microsoft has been known to issue a kill order over the networks if yours is something leaked widely.

Are you saying a teacher in a class helped you obtain an enterprise copy? That's sad.

Be aware you are treading so close to discussion lock since any copy that isn't legit isn't going to find support in most forums. It's a shame you have the suitcase of cash version without the usual support that goes with it.

My advice is to go back to the class and supplier to demand what you paid for.

If you're sure

If you're sure it's a legit copy and the school was authorized to distribute it to students then you are entitled to the support that Bob talked about.

However, I'm with Bob on this one. In fact, I rather suspect you know it's not a legit copy, because your posts suggest that you already tried contacting Microsoft for support and they told you they don't support pirated copies. Either way, it's highly unlikely that copy of Windows is legit. If you were led to believe otherwise by the school, or someone working for the school, I'd be sure to take it up with them ASAP.

Let's find out more.

When did this start? After your class installed this iffy license of this OS?

If so, consider installing the OS that used to work.

Something is delaying it. If you can't find what that is and you have no way to go back, reinstalling Windows is the easy way out.
