Incorrect Product Key on my Official Microsoft Product Key Sheet

Discussion in 'Windows Vista Installation' started by MikeAtFormwise, Jul 13, 2006.

  1. Hi, I have just received my Vista DVD directly from Microsoft. I have gone to
    install it and it asked me if I wanted to update from the internet, which I
    allowed it to do. It then asked me to enter in the Product Key which it then
    told me was incorrect! But I have double-checked my typing and it is exactly
    as printed on the sheet. Does anyone know what is going wrong? And does
    anyone know how to fix it? I can supply a scan of the sheet if anyone is
    interested.

    My disc hasn't even arrived, I ended up downloading.
    have you made sure O is not zero and vica versa?
    if it helps I have 5 sets of numbers/letters divided in my key (check to
    make sure you have this)

  3. Hi, I had been following the instructions - Stupid of me I suppose. What I
    initially did was place the disc into the drive while running XP and tried to
    install it while still under XP. When I rebooted and installed from scratch
    the code was accepted.

  4. The key works just the same whether you install from the XP desktop or by
    booting from the dvd. Likely there was a simple typo.
