Windows 7 64bit Ultimate, plus practically every other flavor of Windows
Have Product Key, missing OEM discs

I have a valid HP Paviliion desktop Windows 7 Pro activation key. However, the discs are long gone and I don't have the time nor the inclination to order more discs.

Can I use any version of Windows 7 Professional with this key, or only certain kinds of versions, or...? Anyone know what I can do besides pay for the HP discs and wait for them to arrive in the mail?

The HP recovery partition is also seemingly long gone.

As always, thanks for all the time and help here at seven forums.
