Oem does not use a product key it uses just the installer. I, however, have a product key.

And you were given a work around. There is no reason to respond in that manner to someone trying to help. The bottom line is that you are going to have to activate by phone somehow, someway, somewhere. If it is important to you, I am sure you are resourceful enough to find a way to do so.

Yes OEM does use a product key. You might get a lot more help if you ask right, Nobody here owes you anything and they aren't getting paid either.
Think before you type is always a good rule.

I thought you did alright, I mainly wanted to clarify that OEM also uses a key, They all need a key actually.

I'll just install linux or something. This is to much work and to many headaches. Thanks for trying though.

Not during the install it dont. Maybe it has one somewhere built in, but the install never asks for one.
