I had work install a home copy of Windows 7 Enterprise edition on my laptop. I'm leaving the job, and I need to buy a copy of Windows. Most editions I'm able to find are Ultimate edition, not Enterprise edition. Would I be able to buy an Ultimate edition key and use it on Enterprise edition?

If you are just looking to be legal call Microsoft, they will be more than happy to help. Especially if you're looking to buy Ultimate. :) –  Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 Sep 27 '11 at 1:24

No. The Windows 7 keys are specific to the hardware, computer manufacturer (assuming its pre-installed), and the version of Windows.
