First off, DayZ was working fine for me until today. Then I kept getting stuck on the black "loading..." screen and realized I needed to install the new 1.7.1 version. So I ran DayZ Mod Updater (from Worrom) v1.5 and it failed at the sfx file. Then I used v1.6 of the Updater and it still failed. So then I figured I need to install the beta patch first. And then while extracting that I come across the wrong cd key error.
I've launched the Sic Updater tool too and it did no help either.

YOu know that you could get much more help if you ask without using words like "fucking" or "what the fuck"....
I guess I'll have to reinstall everything from scratch tomorrow. I don't have the patience for it now. So great that this happened right when I found a bicycle ingame...
It's very easy to rage on the internet Boggy. There are a great many community members that would help you out however keeping calm and explaining your problems is probably the way to go.
Regarding your problem I can't understand why you would have completely degraded your 1.71 installation back to 1.5 ! The beta patches are quite a step forward in terms of technology and IMHO need to be used as if they were official patches! However that is perhaps just me.
Should you come up against other problems please keep calm and post here and we will help you out.
Cheers (and welcome to the forums)
some people say the BI beta/FTP are down/overloaded due Dayz demand

You do not appear to have done any of that. Instead you post here whinging & whining - in more than somewhat abusive terms - to people who have tried to help you despite your fecklessness. To be as polite as possible, until you have re-read the rules and decided to be polite yourself, I suggest you go forth and multiply.
please control your language, most users in this forum aren't familiar with teenage slang. Take it as friendly reminder.
BTT, regarding what Dwarden wrote above, did you already tried to re-download the beta patch? Run it as Administrator? You know, the common stuff i found when searching for "wrong CD key".
As a sidenote, i used Worrom's updater just today ind it worked fine and i still use the 1.45 version of it.
