No


Elaborating...

You can't because Microsoft isn't that stupid product keys for Windows flavor are usable specifically for the flavor they're intended for. It's like asking "Why can't I use an XP serial with Vista?".

Because Windows XP and Vista are different distributions of Windows (and from experince Windows Vista sucks), where Windows 7 Enterprise and Ultimate are both in the same family but sold as different flavors. Plus Windows 7 Enterprise is basically the same as Windows 7 Ultimate, but Enterprise is only open to orginizations such as colleges. On top of that the Enterprise license can be used on multiple PCs (or Macs). As Ultimate can be bought by anyone and the license can be used on one PC (or Mac) at a time.

So if Windows 7 Enterprise is the same as Ultimate, then why not just install Enterprise since you say you already have a copy and the key?

Hmmm...

But you should better ask Microsoft than us

Even though the functionality and features of Ultimate and Enterprise are same, the targeted customers are different.

So, you will not be able to install Ultimate with Enterprise key

As said by Haney, you may consider installing Enterpise..

Not also that it varies in performance between them both.

You should however be able to install Enterprise x64bit (which is Identical to Ultimate x64)

The product key is valid for all revisions of the same Tier of Windows 7

I.E.
My login to MSoft shows me my Win7 product key (which is always constant regardless of pick), then asks what version I want to download today to use that key on, x86 or x64, ISO, or DMG

I have been through at least 7 windows OSs and i can defiantly confirm that each windows flavor has a SEPARATE library of product keys that are IN NO WAY interchangeable with each other [32 or 64-bit]. I have even tried using keygens and mods that say they work with each other and that they have patches installed that make it possible, BUT IT DOESNT...

I would highly doubt that would be possible. I would think that each version would have a different algorithm for producing keys...
