Do a clean re-install (if you didn't already).

OK, problem with Activating. What version of Windows 7 did you install?
I understand Windows 7 7100 RC (what version?)
1. Basic
2. Home
3. Home Premium
4. Professional
5. Ultimate
or one of the ,N versions.

What is the KEY: 1st 5 and last 5 will do.

Versions are KEY selective.

Keys are 5 numbers in 5 sets = 25

OK, but what you posted was your Product ID: which indicates it is basically a Ultimate Key.
You also say Win 7 7100 RC. Ultimate.
I recommend you try another KEY.
you key should look like this:
KEY:
Code:
 VMCB9-FDRU6-6CDQM-RV23K-RP8F7
the one you typed in when ask during the install. If you did not type in a key during install, you only have 30 days Trial... that is also why it will not activate.

If the problem was due to an incorrect key, then surely it would just fail to activate, but not return an error.

Hi there
can you post a screenshot of the error (snip tool should still work).

Note you CAN'T yet use WGA (Windows Genuine Advantage) as this is not yet working for Windows 7 -- don't confuse this with Windows Activation.

If Windows doesn't activate properly chances are you've got a "Key genned" or other hacked copy.

Cheers

100% correct "BAD KEY" I can duplicate by using a BAD KEY.

Vista Ult64, Win7600
 
 

Just get a new key from MS and try again.

I've noticed the '1 click cleaner' on your desktop. If you've used some sort of registry cleaner it may have edited a needed registry key, there are no cleaners that work 100% with Windows 7. As similar in architecture to Vista as it may be it's still vastly different.
