Windows XP Install Problem

Hello guys,

I have got a new/sealed Windows XP with SP3. When I try to install it and I get to the product key entered it says at it is not the right key and I have a few times making sure that I am getting it right, with the same error. It is a genuine disc and key. What is wrong?
