    That link is fine i changed it so it reflects the certificate. Either key posted will work but if you want you can just use the Dell key.

    I can't even see it too small LOL. Try a reboot and retype the key in make sure it's typed in correctly.

    Did you have any previous lo*ders or anything installed? Before you tried to activate with OEM key?

    That could be an issue. Go reformat and reinstall but save that certificate and that key.

    But to be on the safe side when you reinstall on the screen it ask you to go online to get updates hit the no not now button then proceed to finishing the install then you go back through the process of certificate install then key install. Then you can get whatever updates are there on WU.

    That Dell key is fine. I am thinking it has something to do with a previous lo*der install.
