Windows 7 Home Premium
Is this possible? Switching computers

I am slightly confused if this would work out.
Right now I am running Windows 7 Home Premium on my primary computer, which was done as an upgrade from windows XP.
I have since purchased another copy of windows 7, this time the Professional edition, for another PC.

What I would really like to do is this:
Install my new RAID system in my current primary computer, do a clean install of Windows 7 PROFESSIONAL(not the version that is "married" to that motherboard currently"), activate that and leave it.

Upgrade another computer(on which i have only XP installed currently) with the windows 7 HOME PREMIUM edition.

My reason for this is that I have come across various applications that would probably benefit from XP mode. If it is truely not possible to do then its no big deal, but it would just be nice if i could.

If that doesn't work out, how do i go about doing a fresh install when my new hard drives arrive? can I just install it and then enter the activation code since all of the hardware will stay the same?
