Yes, go UP!

You may want to post some more details as to what you did exactly, what disk you used, what steps you did when you installed the OS. Without a valid product key, once you started the setup and you got past formatting and file copy stage, the old OS is gone, you need to either buy a valid license key or put some legs under the laptop and call it a coffee table.

Unless you did not actually get that far, what happens when you just reboot the computer?
