    Right click on the start icon, select Command Prompt (Admin). Run:
    slmgr /dlv

    You should run slmgr /dlv from command prompt to get the result.

    Anyway I think you need to change the key to this one *****-*****-DKB77-7M9GH-8HVX7 (Not sure if we are allowed to post these - so google the rest)

    Yep, that's the ticket - he probably has the old Build 10240 key anomaly.
