So what happened was my friend lent me his Windows 7 Home Premium disc and I created an iso from that and installed it. Later I bought my own copy of Win 7 from ebay (apparent authorized reseller). Got the box, tried the code, and it gave me an error stating that the key was for upgrades only. I tried creating an iso out of my disc to install windows from again, but I cant seem to get the pc to recognize the flashdrives. Before it wouldn't recognize the flash drives either, but i found a windows 7 usb tool that i installed on the flashdrive with the iso on it and it worked just fine. Now that wont even work. Not sure what to do next. The key I have is valid.
