This is an easy fix. Just go ahead and start Windows 7 set up from Windows 7 desktop and allow Windows 7 to upgrade itself.
So basically you install 7, then once you get to the desktop run setup and then upgrade the existing Windows 7 with Windows 7.
Then you will be able to activate.

I didn't see your post. Either I didn't get an email or I accidentally deleted it. Well, microsoft made me buy another key. I wish I saw your post.
Thank you
