It says:

Error

The product key you've entered appears to be for software which was pre-installed by the device manufacturer. Please contact the device manufacturer for software recovery options.

Remind me how you got the key - with a keyfinder program ?? - If yes, then you are dealing with a generic key that has been used for thousands of systems and is useless for you.

Hmm, then the only other cause of the message I can think of is that you try to install a version that does not exactly correspond to the key. Else it should work.

Have you owned this laptop since new or did you buy it second hand? What version of Windows 7 is your COA sticker for?
