Bought a laptop in... one of the famous stores. Laptop Asus VX6, filled with ION2. Immediately decided to test the functionality of this feature under Linux (in health, I had no doubt at that time because read network to the holes) and when the installation was demolished a hidden partition (the recovery partition) on the hard drive. Actually, the feature does not work (and it works under Linux very crooked), plus there were the stay-put button, and I decided to abandon the purchase. At the time of submission of the application to the store of purchase two days (weekend).
Was refused due to the fact that "the operating system is part of picking a laptop". While in the purchase receipt and the cash receipt on the configuration, there is no word (there is a name, which spelled "Windows 7"), in the accompanying documents to the laptop too. Therefore, there is no evidence of this statement is not, sort of. In the guarantee requirements about the OS in General, not a word. Key sticker is present on bottom of laptop.
Honestly, at the time of installation, I was sure that no problem demolition section, will not cause me this one does not warned, documents no such information. Actually, the question is to prove the fact that a hidden partition on the hard drive is not part of the set. A strange type of expertise to be honest, the type of examination of the documents.
Between times in the shop I mentioned that the restoration of Winchester in STS Asus (but this requirement comes from them) is as much as 2,500 rubles. The claim I wrote (asked to replace on a laptop at twice the price), the store needs me to provide evidence that this section is part of a complete set (some nonsense).
Now the question is: who is to blame and what to do?
