There is an ISO which will activate with the Product Key on the COA sticker now. What is the exact version listed on that sticker?

You think that it is not activating because it is English while the licensed version is Japanese? This is why you want to obtain an Japanese Home Premium ISO, correct?.
The Sticker on the laptop is windows 7 Home Premium. I says naff-all about if its English or Japnaese. But it is for the Japanese version.
Again `Correct (and `Microsoft Japan Activation by phone` confirmed that in a lengthy roundabout way).

I didn`t say that. I am prety sure I said that I cannot get the Japanese anytime Upgrade key to work on the English Version of Windows Home Premium either.

Incredible patience? or joking around?
I can strip a Jaguar V8 and rebuild it and shim the tappets, and I can install a Rover 820 clutch using a tyre jack, a round stick, and 2 adjustable spanners; I can even install house gas plumbing and fit kitches and bathrooms and tile whole rooms and floors, I can install structural steel in walls to hold up load-bearing walls in multi-story brick buildings and fit copper plumbing and heating and wastewater drainage and have installed brickset drives and double glazing, but PC instructions are another league of .
