Hi guys, just wanted to give you guys an update since you were so nice to try and help. I did the magic jelly bean, got a completely different id number than the one shown on the side of the computer. Entered it in the verification thing, did no good..
Long story short, I called micro again (800 micros..) THIS time the gal was helpful, didnt mention a charge and had me check and enter a few numbers and it worked. No more "invalid windows 7"...
Once again, thanks for you suggestions
