Is this just a basic upgrade question or are you having trouble getting the key installed?

If you are having trouble with the key, check out this thread: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en/sqlsetupandupgrade/thread/bdd94577-515c-49fa-be44-008eacece057.

If, perhaps, you are upgrading from an evaluation version, check this out:

If those don't hit it, please elaborate.  Thanks...RG

for the following reason:

when you installed from evaluation and later on wanted to make it genuine by entering the product key then you'll need to re-run the setup again and follow the step by step instruction.
