Pal I know your getting frustrated but you can install Win 7 without putting in the activation code (you have 28 days with which to activate your OS) ---- just skip the activation code part (when installing). Once installed if the "activate on line" option doesn't work try the phone option to authenticate

*edit --- Lol I see you figured that out whilst I was typing

Ok now I tried the phone activation and it asks for my product key too and it doesn't recognize the characters I speak.... Do I need to buy 7 again?

Call up your reseller. Who did you buy it from?
