Advice + Help

Hi Guys.
This is my first post on this forum so please bare with me. Ok this is what I have Sony Vaio VPCEC2S0E i5CPU M430 @ 2.27Ghz 6GB Ram Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit. I use this laptop to DJ with at Mobile Discos so I have removed alot of Bloated software provided by Sony. I did here that there are some Lite Versions of 64 Bit Operating Systems. My other question is If I did get one of these versions would the product key on the underside of this laptop work. Thanks very much
