Hiyya Gary yes mate we made the ISO from the site mentioned (see pic) and the BIOS was set to boot from the stick lined up as the first boot device (a Sandisk 4GB) .

I might have to redo the ISO it did take forever to download actually the longest one I have done so far.

True, it's over 3GB and will take some time. did you try the one-time boot menu option, not the BIOS option? Maybe by pressing F2, F5, or something during boot with the stick inserted.

Hello Steve,

Be sure that you are using the product key number on the COA sticker on the bottom of the laptop or under the battery.

If you are, then you may be able to activate by phone instead.

Hiyya Shawn (John) Yes mate we are using the original sticker that that fellow sent Steve it is obviously a very old label off the Dell machine so I am hazarding a guess it is tied somehow to the Dell disk??.

We have emailed Microsoft as phoning over here is super expensive
