Activation error in original windows 7 starter (HP Mini 210) - Help!

HP Recommended
HP Mini 210
Microsoft Windows 7 (32-bit)



I bought a used HP mini 210 and I had to install windows 7 Starter as the hard disk was formatted by the previous owner.  


I have the original product key, but for some reason I keep getting this message when I try to activate it:


"The product key you have entered will not work with this edition of windows 7"


The windows edition which I have downloaded and installed is Windows 7 x86 Starter n with SP1.


The windows edition on the product key sticker is  Windows 7 Starter SNPC OA.


Any advise/suggestions on how I can successfully activate windows? Thank you.
