The key code is for Windows 7 Home Premium. Do i have to uninstall the wrong version, and reinstall the correct version, or is there a workaround? I could use some help, please.

All taken care of. Did a complete wipe of Windows 7 Ultimate, and installed Window 7 Home Premium. It's all good now.

Enter the PK and when it tells you it doesn't match, do the phone activation. It takes a few minutes but you should be able to get a valid PK. If it doesn't work, then you need to find an Ultimate PK or reinstall with Home.
