    Ok so I upgraded my Windows 7 install, had it for like a week with no issues so tried a clean install.

    I did edit a few things in the image like disabling features (which seems to have broken the activation part of windows)

    I tried putting the key into elevated cmd and it tells me its invalid.

    Not sure if its because I broke something but its a legit key, I got it when 7 launched and from MS itself (that being said the sticker is somewhere so can't double check, I normally just backup the activated key

    You don't need to input the key as your copy is activated by digital entitlement. Stick with the generic retail key for the appropriate SKU, be online & it'll be automatically activated.

    I think I broke something as I disabled a few features on my image, wifi doesnt work (well it shows in device manager but wifi available is blank) and the activate button does nothing, and when I try doing it through cmd it gives me a error code like class not registered.

    Do certain services need to be active for each so I can reactivate them,

    Open network and sharing center and see if wifi is enabled.
    If it's on a notebook it can also be disabled by a physical switch
    or by a function key.
