First - if you have a DVD drive suggest you change your subscription to DVDs
simply to reduce number of CDs. Taking a guess here - you are trying to
"fresh" install Vista from the CD to the HD. One cause for the error (this
not an invalid key error) is trying to "fresh" install Vista to a second HD.
If you have XP on your computer - boot XP - Begin Vista installation -
select "custom" installation - select target as the HD (partition) on which
you want to install Vista. BTW - If XP is on one drive, usually C,
installing Vista on another, say D, will give you dual boot capability.
