Windows-SKU Problem

I bought windows 7 ultimate today. I'm upgrading from Vista ultimate 64bit to windows 7 ultimate 64bit. At the end of the upgrading process i got asked for the product key. When i enter the product key delivered with the dvd the text-box states "Product key doesn't match Windows-SKU". Whats wrong with my DVD? Can I skipt this step or activate my product key somehow different?

Thank you for your feedback! I have addressed my problem directly to the microsoft support hotline as well. As it seems, the product key I've bought in a original Win 7 Ultimate Package (Update version) was in fact a Home Premium Key (And it's also clear that there has been a mix-up with the product key sticker roles when the product was packed in the plant in ireland). Fortunately I will get a correct key somewhen this month directly from microsoft, but for now I'm still waiting and the system is running with the 30day testlicense.
