Missing 2 digits on product key sticker

#1
I bought a retail of Windows Vista Ultimate from Newegg. Part of the product
key sticker is ripped off and I'm missing the last 2 digits. I don't even
know how to contact MS support because they ask for a PID and I can't find
that on the box or anything. All I have is the disks, Certificate of
Authenticity, and the product key with 2 missing digits. What do I do?

Hi,

Contact Newegg and tell them the package is damaged and that you did not
recieve a full Product key. They need to replace it. If they do not, then
contact your credit card company and have the payment withheld.
