Did you do a clean install and have Vista or XP installed? With an OEM disc this is what you will have to do. Also do not activate it during the install. Wait untill windows is up and running and then activate. You will have 30 days to do this.

I have the same os and you have to have a previous version of Vista or XP to use the OEM disc but you will have to do a clean install and not the upgrade. You will need a Retail version to install on a disc with no os.
Do you have a copy od Vista or XP with the key codes?
