I called them on Friday and she asked for the serial number of the HMC and whether it's a CR2 of CR3. I told her I didn't know the SN and have no idea what a CCR is. She said it's okay and asked for the SN of the 9406-520 and it got handled the usual way - PMR number and live transfer - even though I was connected to the HMC group.
Thank for all the replies.

Guess it's not the *correct* answer, but when I call Support
with an HMC problem, I give them the serial number of the
HMC and the release of HMC code. It works for me.

The "correct" answer it to get *ANOTHER support line
contract on the HMC, which you *ALREADY pain too much for.
Otherwise lie your way into the system, and then get
transferred.

If I call the support line for help with the HMC and the
operator asks whether the problem is with the base
operating system as they always do, I should say no;
correct?
