Reinstalling Windows7 with Anytime Upgrade License

All,

I have a version of Windows 7 Home (64-bit) which I have upgraded to Windows7 Professional.

My question is I want to do a fresh re-install of Windows 7 (on the same computer) and I only have my Windows7 Home Install disc with its license.  When I re-install will it install Windows7 Home - or Profesional?  Do I need to gather some information from my system (License Key or something) before starting the re-install so that I can re-install to my 'AnyTime Upgrade' of Windows 7 Professional?

 

Thanx Much,

   _MIke_
