You're not supposed to enter the key during the installs, only after.

un-check the "activate online" box

If I did and it said it wasn't right, can I still use it online?

If it gave the error once, you can make the registry change, then try to activate manually online.

I just did a whole fresh install again, to start from scratch. Making sure all the updates go through before I begin on option 3

Before I go any further should I try entering the key here? Or should I just start doing the stuff for option three.

Go to Control Panel, System and click the "Activate ... " link and add the key there.
