I doubt reverting to the older bios will help but if activating immediately is very important to you and you're comfortable flashing the bios, you can give it a shot. If I were in your place I would just continue doing whatever I was doing and wait to talk to MS about the key. FYI, the computer will not explode, you can use windows in trial state for as long as 120 days.

Thanks for that information, which is rather encouraging for people who through no fault of their own find themselves in the same predicament.

I'll modify my future advice on the same subject accordingly.

personally i would call and talk to microsoft because i wouldn't want to rollback the bios, nor reinstall windows and my apps again. but it is your decision.
I think thats the best idea right now. I will follow your advice
