Windows 7: Same disc,different keys?

Same disc,different keys?

I have a laptop that I installed a purchased copy of Windows 7:Home Premium x64 on. I have a 2nd laptop that I would like to install Windows 7:Home Premium 32 bit on and have ordered a copy. My question is can I use the 32 bit disc I already have to install Windows 7 and use the product key from the second copy when it arrives to active it? Is this ok to do?

The Windows 7 installation on my main laptop has not been activated yet.

Thanks in advance.
