    Can't install the consumer preview

    Hi I can't install the consumer preview of windows 8 so that I can dual boot it with windows 7 I keep typing the product key that downloaded from Microsoft I always get a message that my product key could not be verified

    Could it be that windows is trying to install over my windows 7 ?
