    Installed Windows 7 again, with Dell Bios and Dell Cert. I installed the original Key, have ran all updates and now im getting the black screen etc.

    I have then re-entered a different key, (Ultimate) from the thread on here, restarted the PC. still black screen, still says needs activating. Press it, the green progress bar gets so far, stops says its not genuine.

    That also happens iif i change the product key through the GUI windows under Computer Properties.

    Totally forgot how to do it! Can someone redirect me please :)

    Of course you can simply avoid kb971003.
