The key is stored at two locations in the unattend.xml. Did you check this one: http://blogs.technet.com/b/askcore/archive/2009/10/05/invalid-product-key-error-specifying-mak-key-in-unattend-xml.aspx

To identify the problem:
1. Make sure you have the correct key (mak, retail, oem..)
2. Do you install the right version of Windows for that key ?
3. Refer to the following post:

Once you have verified that the product key is valid ("genuine product" | "full product" | "upgrade product") for the type of installation that you are doing . . . Then try this:
Start the installation/set-up process again, and wait for the error message to appear.
Locate the "Settings" menu in the installation menu bar.
Under the "Settings" window -> Select "Removable Devices" --> Double-click the "Floppy" icon => Turn off "Enable Floppy Drive".
Now hit the "OK" button in the error message box. If that does not work straight away, Restart the installation process.
This should work on a number of products.
