Call Microsoft

They will have you read the data from the inner ring of the CD, validate it and give you a usable key (unless the one you have is in use).

Where does it state invalid key?

by wanttocancel In reply to Product key

Is it after you installed Home and it's time to insert the key or when you try to activiate Windows. If it's during the installation point you will need to double check that you're using the right key for the product (I know, but I've made that mistake myself) and if so contact Microsoft for further help. If it's during the activiation then do the telephone activiation and answer the question relating to the reason for the installation.
