Question About Activating

My sister purchased her laptop two weeks ago with Vista Home Premium 32 bit. I upgraded her laptop to 7 Home Premium 32 bit and wanted to know if she can order the Windows 7 Upgrade and use the product key that comes with the upgrade?

I didn't use a key, you can run 7 without one for 30 days. I'm wondering if I can use the product key that comes with the upgrade. I used my DVD to install 7 but didn't activate it.

If she bought the laptop just two weeks ago, then she is entitled to a free upgrade to Windows 7.
