Re: Help product key wont activate
do this. Install the Os when it asked to activate do not, click the option to active later. Once the you have it installed, put the disk back in and select the option to upgrade your version of windows. Once it goes through the upgrade reinstall you will now be able to use the key to active. What you are basically doing is upgrading the upgrade.
I know this works I used this on two separate systems to install my copies of win 7 pro
