Pretty much what the message says. Each product key can be used to activate a finite number of operating system instances, unless it is a KMS key set up in a corporate environment. Are you in a corporate environment? Contact your IT help desk. If you are doing this on your home system, it looks like you have reached the limit on the number of activations, meaning that you, or someone with access to the key, has previously activated several instances.
If all these activations have occurred on the same piece of hardware, then you should be able to call the activation center and explain what has happened. The limit check is in there so that a person does not illegally use a single copy of the software to install on multiple machines. An activation is required any time there is a significant hardware change from one installation to another.

In addition to Tim’s post, you may run SLUI 4.exe to find out and contact your local activation center for further assistance.
