If you an upgrade version, you need to select upgrade. It sounds like you are trying to use an upgrade key for a non-upgrade install.

First, you can clean install from an upgrade disk. ref here http://www.sevenforums.com/vip/30620-clean-install-upgrade-windows-7-version.html#post321754 but that doesn't explain why the key doesn't work. can you clip and paste it? I get the feeling there is something simple that we all are overlooking.

the key is 25 numbers in groups of 5 correct?

Any chance you are misreading one of the letters or numbers. K or X, 0 or O, I or 1, 2 or Z and maybe others.
