Win7 ultimate installed, downgrade to Pro?

HI

i have Windows 7 ultimate installed over previous few months, for testing purposes,

however i have brought professional edition.

the key for Pro, can't be used onon ultimate,

is there a way to downgrade without completely reinstalling Windows 7?

due to the fact i have setup all my settings/programs etc...
