Unfortunatly with an invalid product key you arent elidgable to download SP2 (you can install it from a disk). But more then that you cant install the windows validation tool which is required to download most post SP2 upgrades as well as other software microsoft produces and supports. my advice... buy a legal copy of windows or just go linux.
