Anytime Upgrade Problem: Only Have Product Key.

So I have Home Premium installed on my computer. I recently got my hands on a perfectly legal copy of Professional. It isn't an anytime upgrade its the install DVD. So I tried and update and that didn't work. It told me I needed to do an anytime upgrade, however when I enter the product key it tells me that I entered a key for an edition of windows that is not compatible with anytime upgrader.

So my question basically is. How can I upgrade to Professional using the product key that I have?

My understanding is a MSDNAA license can only be used if you perform a "clean install" using a genuine MSDNAA Windows 7 disc.  Feel free to Contact the MSDNAA Customer Service department for further assistance.
