yes. you call the number they give you. And its just automated, and you tell the machine your number that windows generates, and the machine gives u another number. VOILA.

works perfectly. dont even have to talk to a human.

Yep, I'm going to be in the same prediciment once my machine is done, cause I'm using the install disk from my dell, but when I formated and reinstalled, it never asked for a key, but if it does I'll just do what you guys said and call.
