Windows 7 product key query

I have a genuine copy of Windows 7 Home Premium (both the 32 bit and 64 bit DVD versions) along with the product key.

What I want to do is install the 32 bit version on my other PC but I can't do that using the product key that came with the package as I have already used that on the 64 bit version that I have installed.

I think the product key will work with either version but not both.

What I'm wondering is that instead of creating an ISO DVD (I don't really know how to do it), couldn't I just use the 32 bit DVD rather than use the link mentioned in my screenshot ?

Any ideas anyone ?

Cheers.

Mmm.. I installed it and it activated okay so it must be a genuine unused key or otherwise Microsoft would have picked it up during the verification process ?

It is around 8 months since I bought it and so during this time if it had been a pirated product key, surely it would have been activated on too many PC's by now and being blocked ?
