Please follow this tutorial and post an MGADiag report - then we can see what the problem is.
Windows Genuine and Activation Issue Posting Instructions

Please also state the Version and Edition of Windows quoted on your COA sticker (if you have one) on the case of your machine (or inside the battery compartment), but do NOT quote the Key on the sticker!

Sorry - I missed that you were using an iPad for this.
I have no idea how to transfer data between the two, unless you can save the file to a USB stick (in notepad), and then move the stick to the iPad, and ipload it from there.

Do you have not network capability on the Windows machine that can log in to the site?

You can try - I've never had an iPad attached by any means to a Windows 7 computer - so I have no idea what's involved.
How are you connecting the two?
