Windows 7: Student Upgrade on New Virtual Machine - Activation

Student Upgrade on New Virtual Machine - Activation

I have Windows XP Pro on a Boot Camp partition of my Mac Book Pro. I have gone through the arduous process of creating an .iso file and have installed Windows 7 into a new virtual machine. It is a clean install since there was nothing else there. Now I cannot get past the activation screen, where I re-enter the Product Key, whether the activation check box is filled in or not, I get an error.

Any ideas about 1 - what is the source of the problem?
2 - how to deal with it?

Thanks.

Had to go all the way through registry modification, but it is installed. Another reminder about why I prefer the Mac. Thanks for your help.
