you might get another set of eyes to look at the product key. the most common error is mistaking numbers as characters(i.e. 8 instead of B).

Start>Run, type in regedit, when Registry Editor opens expand H-Key Local Machine>Software>Microsoft>Windows and highlight Curent Version (CurVer) The panel on the right will have your working product key. You can also coppy the cabinet files from the CD onto a formatted C: and do an install using them.
It occurs that you may have to go into safe mode to find the key, or you ma;y have wiped it out during the install attempt. As far as I can tell the product key has to match the product number, widows for computerw without windows is product 115, OEM windows is product 120.
