Invalid activation key



i downloaded and installed windows vista RC1, using the serial key that
microsoft's page provided me. installation finished without a hitch, but
after i tried to log in, it said that in needed to be activated. i dont have
a modem right now (it fried), so i called the provided number and gave the
activation number on my screen. i then typed in the number i was given. i
didnt get any errors while typing in the activation key, but when i clicked
ok, it said the key was invalid. i tried it all again, got the exact same
numbers, got the exact same respones. how do i sucessfully activate vista?

Call the number again.
This time be sure you successfully enter the key before ending the call.
You probably mis-typed one or more characters.
