For the full version the key decides what version you will run, If you don't put in a key when first install you can run any version Home to Ultimate for 30 days, then you will be prompt for a activation key..(I think that is right, If not it is either the version you buy) for example if I got the Pro version, but did not put in the key, I would either get the Pro version for 30 days, or have a choice of what version I want for 30 days. (I can't remember)
I am not sure on the upgrade disk, but I still think it is the same has full version and the key also decides what version you will run..
Hope that Helps..
