Windows 7: installing home premium from a professional disc?

installing home premium from a professional disc?

I bought a new laptop, and it came with a 5400rpm HDD with Home Premium x64. I have an SSD I would like to install, and need to install windows 7. I have a Windows 7 professional x64 disc, but I'm using it on my brothers laptop.

Can I use that disc to install windows 7, and just use the key found on the label on the bottom of this laptop? Or does the cd have to be a home premium cd?

I have an ultimate CD also, but it's being used on my main computer.

You could make a universal disc and just install the home premium from that,

Hello.



Windows 7 activation keys are version specific, a H. Premium key will not activate a Professional version, a H. Premium key will only activate a H.P. install.
