Does a windows product key need to match up with a specific disk?

So I am currently building 2 computers for work. The first build i put together and installed a windows 7 pro install disk. I was given the error that windows failed to load because of a missing kernal. I swapped windows 7 discs (since i bought 2) and the second disk installed the OS just fineSo now i have one disk with the OS and two product keys. Can i use the same disk for the second computer but use the product key from the bad disk?Thanks for the help. 

They are not tied to each other. The Windows file on the CD is just the same one for every CD, you could download the same Windows to a USB stick and use the same key for that too for example. Can\’t activate Windows on multiple PC\’s.
