Product key doesn't work on new installed windows 7

Hello. I have a Inspiron N5050 and used it for about 3 or 4 years now. It worked very slow so i decided to reinstall it. A friend had a disk with windows 7 home premium (that's what i also had) but after the installation i realised he had a 64 bit version so i got on the internet and downloaded a windows 7 home premium 32 bit. But now i need to enter the product key and now i get the message that it's invalid (or something like that). Does anyone know what the problem is?

336780,

It will not work if you installed Windows 7 from a download and used a different key code for it. You can click the link below to purchase a Windows restore disk.

Hi,

Thank you writing us!

In this case you would have to purchase the OS media which will have the Product key .

Thanks
