and would then be unable to track it's end destination or purchase date anyway

Quoteand would then be unable to track it's end destination or purchase date anywayThe barcode on the motherboard should be able to be traced all the way through the system with no problem as all companies have to keep records of their transactions.

Sorry just trying to help.
To be honest I am surprised that they are being so pedantic but they must have some reason for it. I would suggest that you PM runn3R the Gigabyte Administrator of the forum and see if he can help you at all.http://forum.giga-byte.co.uk/index.php?action=profile;u=13
