Windows 7: Will Windows 7 Debug/Checked Build key work with normal Windows 7

Will Windows 7 Debug/Checked Build key work with normal Windows 7

I downloaded the Windows 7 Pro x64 SP1 Debug/Checked Build from the MSDNAA, and I want to go to the regular version of Windows 7 Pro x64 SP1. Would I be able to download the normal Windows 7 Pro x64 SP1 from, say, Digital River, and use the same key that I got with the Debug/Checked Build?

Thanks in advance

You should be able to download it from your MSDNAA account, I think? (have you tried logging in and looking?)
I'm pretty sure that the Key will work happily with the normal Win7 disk.

Well, the thing is, a year and half ago, I upgraded to Windows 7 Pro on my old computer. Then I got a newer computer, and they won't let you download a copy of Windows 7 Pro again with a different product key. That is why I wanted to know if the key from the Debug/Checked Build version would work with the normal Windows 7 iso that I would get from Digital River. So yo do think that it will work then?
