    Sadly I downloaded this and on both machines it says that the disk doesnt contain windows images for the keys. One is a dell and one is a toshiba. It wont pull the code from the motherboard so I had to use a tool and write it down seperate.

    If your talking about the Media Creation Tool, the version you download has to match the version that was installed by the OEM. If you install Pro and it shipped with Core, you be prompted to enter a key. Same deal if it shipped with Pro and you install Core. Single Language is another version with its own key. If your being prompted to enter a key your installing the wrong version.

    Its regular core. This has even been confirmed with microsoft on the phone that the key is a valid windows 7 core oem key.

    I do agree with you guys tho that it should pickup the key from the bios, it has worked perfect for a long time for me. But now im starting to see alot of these brand new machines it wont work on anymore. One of these 2 machines is only a few weeks old.

    OK, don't know what to tell you. My two laptops are over a year old. My media picks up the OEM embedded keys no problem. MSDN ISO's and the Media Creation Tool downloads.

    Is secure boot and UEFI enabled in the BIOS?

    I wish I knew why they do this also. Ive used those same disks on many many machines at my shop. Before it was one in maybe 50 that wouldnt work but that would usually turn out to be that the motherboard was replaced under warranty and it didnt have a bios code saved.
