Hi tonyobringer, Yes the product key is ok for the upgrade, as long as you are using an Dell disc. If you are using an retail disc, then you will have to use the product that came with it. If your upgrading from XP to vista, then you wont have to reformst your disc. However if your doing an clean install. then you will have to reformat the HD.
