Windows 7: Home Premium N key won't work with Home Premium - Help.

Home Premium N key won't work with Home Premium - Help.

I have windows 7 home premium on a dvd and I installed it on my computer. I typed in the product key and it says it won't work with the current sku, on windows first time setup.

I know that it's a windows 7 home premium N key, because I used a program that told me what it was. So anyways, it won't work with home premium. Why doesn't it work. it is a home premium dvd and a home premium product key.

I tried phone activation but it failed. It is a valid key because microsoft gave it to me. So do I need a special install dvd for windows 7 home premium N? Or is there any way I can get it to work now?

Where do I download a copy of windows 7 home premium n if I do need it?

Thank you all for any help. It's greatly appreciated!

As far as I know Home Premium N and Home Premium have different product keys.

I agree with DarkNova, there are different keys for the two additions.

Try calling the number for your area. You will be given the opportunity to activate by phone. If that does not work a rep should get on the phone

If this is the number that you called, we have to devise an alternative solution. Just let us know.
