  • You've got a Dell OEM SLP install on what looks like a Retail motherboard.  Unfortunately, OEM versions are only valid for the hardware upon which they were originally installed.  You could try to use the Product Key listed on your COA, but that will likely fail.  If/when it does, you will need to purchase a Retail version of Windows, format your drive, and reinstall.  Be sure to back up your files first.

  • That's the point.  You built the PC.  But the OS is an OEM SLP version.  OEM SLP versions are only ever supposed to be installed at the factory by a major PC manufacturer such as Gateway or Dell.  They use a SLIC Table in the BIOS to self activate.  Your retail motherboard does not have a SLIC Table in the BIOS and therefore cannot self activate.  An OEM SLP version of Windows cannot be legally installed on your self built retail system.  You need to use a Retail version of the OS.

  • This is the original hardware. I know because I built it myself. This windows key has never been used on any other machine and the mainboard is the same.
