Sounds like you found a "special" keyless copy on a torrent... nope sorry as all have said that's for the OS that came on the lappy! You need to buy a legit key or beg, borrow, or steal one... than hope someone else doesnt activate it again! Just go legit... MS makes it very difficult to pirate OS anymore! Gone are the "Win95 can I borrow your copy" days!
