I am having trouble transferring the documents and files to my hard drive as it does not show up as a available 'hard disk drive'. 

When I go on add hardware it says that I can only install one device at a time (being my usb with the program)

OK download the windows 7 ISO using your windows key and then you will need to reload windows 7... Be careful when you update drivers

OK from this page download windows 7 to another computer
 https://www.microsof...wnload/windows7
Then use Rufus to burn a bootable USB
 
Download Rufus

Insert the USB stick Then run Rufus
RufusISO.JPG

Select the ISO file on the desktop via the ISO icon.

Press Start Burn

Once the burn is complete then install windows 7 from that USB http://www.sevenforu...ive-create.html

So for some reason my product key from my current laptop is being denied.

Is there any way to retrieve it from my main PC such as using a third party program (i.e ProduKey) to retrieve it via the usb methods from before.

Also if I am on the Reatogo desktop would the my product key for windows 7 still be detectable or not.

thanks

I've hit a complete brick wall, the key for Windows 7 Ultimate brings up the error "We've encountered a problem with the product key you provided." 

The laptop I am currently on is running on Windows 7 Home premium.
