"The Product Key used to install Windows is invalid.PLease contact your system Administrator or retailer to obtain a valid

Product Key. You may also contact Microsoft COrporations's Anti-Piracy team by emailing if you think you

have purchased pirated Microsoft software.Please be assured that any perrsonal information you send to the Microsoft
