They may be confused by the default OEM key, and the key underneath your laptop. As long as you activate the correct Windows 7 version using the key underneath the laptop, you won't have any issues.

yea i did, sorry about that..
what happen is i register online my product key before the installation really complete which i realize i haven't configure my internet connection yet so i end up with invalid product key which is giving me the option to register it by phone.. so i just input(change the product key) the key again with internet connection.
