I may have misunderstood your question. As I say in the above Pdf, even if you use the activation key that comes with your helix (and that's what you should do anyway), it can happen that you still have to activate your copy of Windows by phone.

I pulled my windows code with Belarc just to be safe. When I did do the format and reinstall, I had no problems. It was able to read from the bios and activate without any issues.
