You may not have bogus keys.

You said you tried one using Anytime Upgrade?

I'm not sure you can insert a key in Anytime Upgrade that isn't bought off that MS website. Anytime Upgrade unlocks higher version features and isn't a typical retail install or Upgrade. SIW2 confirms this earlier:

(That assumes the key is valid - and it is the only way I know to find out)
You need to follow SIW2's steps to remake the ISO, burn it and install, then try the key to know for sure:

Otherwise, put the 7 dvd in the drive, rt click , select Copy , rt click the desktop, select paste.

After the files are copied, delete ei.cfg.

Then make those files into an .iso and burn to dvd.

This shows how to make the .iso easily using a free app.
