SBS 2011 SQL Installation - Product Key Failure

Last Modified: 2012-06-27
Have purchased a volume license from MS for SBS2011 with Premium Add-on.  In the middle of performing a SBSMigration, and at the point of installing the SQL on the SBS server (yes I know - but the hardware CAN handle it and only 15 users on network).
When installing however, the product keys received from MS do NOT work!  Anyone else have this issue or know of a solution?
