Piece of advice, when given the option of backing up/creating a install “key” for your computer comes along do it. Otherwise you end up like me with no computer for a few days. Now when this happens you have options, go out and buy the thing that would help fix the problem (you have to buy it since you used the “free” upgrade option), go to a computer store and get them to fix it (good reason not to do this in a bit) or hope some one you know was a lot smarter than you and did the thing you didn’t.
Thankfully my mother was smarter than me and did the thing I didn’t do and was able to mail me what I needed to fix my computer. Separate note good thing that strike never happened. Now it’s important to note it was better to fix it my self instead of a store for one very good reason. Spending god knows how much money to fix something that took literally less than 5 minutes is just a bad idea all around.
