No. Product Keys are bound to the specific type and language of
CD/license (Vista Edition, OEM, Volume, retail, full, or Upgrade) with
which they are purchased. For example, a Vista Home Premium OEM Product
Key won't work for any retail version of WinXP Home, or for any version
of Vista Business, and vice versa. An upgrade's Product Key cannot be
used with a full version CD, and vice versa. An OEM Product Key will
not work to install a retail product. An Italian Product Key will not
work with an English CD. Bottom line: Product Keys and CD types cannot
be mixed & matched.
