Can you use 64 bit key from win741 version with 32bit

I hace a quick question for everyone. I purchased a copy of Windows 7 64bit off I want to install it on an old Macbook Pro which has 1 gb of ram. Obviously I know windows 7 64bit is meant for 4 gigs of ram.

My question is, can I use the 64bit version, or use my friends 32bit install disc and then use the 64 bit key? What would be the best course of action?

The keys are not specific to the bit version.

They are specific to the Edition, e.g. Premium, Pro, Ult.
