Change preinstalled Office 2007 version?

    My new Dell notebook has a trial version of the Student edition of Office
    2007 preinstalled. It will not accept the validation code of my Office
    Enterprise 2007 disks. How do I install the Enterprise edition? Do I remove
    the whole preinstalled version first?

    You need to remove the trial and activation assistant first, reboot, then
    install your edition.

    Why would you expect the key for one version to work with a different
    version?
