OK, i recently upgraded from 8.1 to 7 on my new Predator AG3-605-UR39. I was told that all i had to do was extract the win 8 activation key from the bios and then just enter it into win 7. Sadly this doesn't work and it gives me the 0xC004E003 error code. I really don't want to re-install windows and don't know what to do now. (When i tried to install win 7 onto a partitioned drive, it wouldn't install due to the installer not liking the drive. So i formatted the whole drive. I don't know if i deleted the motherboard bios or not)

You need your windows 7 activation code. It should have come with your windows 7 oem dvd.
7 and 8 are different products and have separate activation codes.

You motherboard bios is not changed by anything.
