Windows 7: Installing win. 7 pro from universal disc

Installing win. 7 pro from universal disc

I have a universal disc I made from my upgrade retail version of home premium. I have purchased a pro version product key which I have upgraded to at the present time. If I get a SSD, can I use the universal disc I made along with the key I purchased to install only, the pro version on the SSD to save space on that drive after, I remove the OS from the standard harddrive? Thanks! :)

I hope you bought that from Microsoft and not on eBay.

I know it wasn't ebay but, I'll have to check my records to find out for sure where I purchased it. Thanks for the warning! :)
