Can I use the same windows key on a new SSD (Same Computer)

My old HDD died on me but I still have the windows 7 instillation disc and product key. I just bought a new 256gb SSD and a 2tb hard drive to replace it and I was hoping I could just install windows 7 when I can borrow my buddy\’s optical drive. Will this work or is windows tied to the HDD in use? 

Hi kenyas,Yes, you can use your old Windows Key to install Windows 7 on your new SSD without any problem.Where people run into trouble with Windows Keys is when they change their motherboard. Windows Product Keys are tied to the motherboard of the system.
