    If this is an OEM installation, the key that counts is on the COA sticker that looks like this:

    That is going to require Microsoft's intervention to get you back up and running. Here is the contact link for them:

    Also note that OEMs use cloned HDDs from a master copy and the Product Key embedded in the Registry will frequently not be the same as on the COA/Certificate Of Authenticity sticker. I have experienced that using the Product Key on the sticker required contacting the OEM instead of Microsoft, apparently one of the things in the licensing agreement between OEMs and Microsoft.
