SOURCE: windows 7 home basic product
Windows 7 Home Basic with the key you provided is an Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) version of Windows 7. These versions are auto-keyed/auto-activated with a BIOS check when booting to the media to install Windows.
The only times it should prompt for a product key are:
If this is not the OEM system the media shipped with, then you can't activate it.
If you installed Windows without booting to the Media, then boot to the media and re-install Windows.
If under warranty, contact the OEM warranty service as they provide support for OEM Windows.
