I'm well aware, and in this case it's useless imo.

How do you know it doesn't work? From what I remember it was on a genuine sticker!

If you are entering it on the M$ site then it will do because it is an OEM!

Try downloading the Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64bit ISO, burning it to a DVD/USB and then installing it using the Product Key!

Clean Install - Without Installation DVD/USB

This process will download the latest and last Windows 7 SP1 [Final] ISO [build 6.1.7601 - July 2009] for your version and bit-type.

[1] Download Windows ISO Downloader.exe [direct download] to the Desktop and run it.
[2] On the right-hand side of the screen under the Windows tab select Windows 7.
[3] In the Select edition drop down box select the Win 7 edition you want an ISO for and click Confirm.
[4] In the Select the product language drop down box select the language you want the ISO to be and click Confirm.
[5] Under the Downloads section click the ISO bit-type you want to download and save it to the Desktop.

I hope this helps!
