Johnny,

Could you let me know what steps in the tutorial that you cannot get to. The step numbers that you describe in your post to not align with what's in the tutorial, so it's hard for me to know where you are at with it.

Johnny,

When you are at the sceenshot under step 7 (if that is where it take you to next), does clicking on the back arrow at the top left corner take you to the screenshot under step 6?

As long as you are able to finish doing a clean install, it really doesn't matter that you had this step or not though.

That shouldn't be a problem. If you haven't already entered your product key number, then you could change the key number to enter it and be able to activate online or activate by phone if it will not do so online.
