If you are installing from a burned ISO, you should be using a 25 character product key that came from a sticker on the laptop.

Not from a box.

Did you install from burned ISO that you downloaded? If so, downloads don't have a box.

It should have this form: xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx

That's 5 groups of 5 characters.

If you are installing from a purchased ready-to-go disk of some type, then we have to get into disk's pedigree.


Such as:

Have you ever successfully installed from this disk before?

Did you get it from Ebay? Newegg? Amazon? Craig's list? A friend? Found it in the street?

Just leave it blank for now, you can work out what ever the problem is later. Probably a mis-typed character.

Forget about the product key for now, you can finish the install without one.
