    As the P-Key is bound to Windows 7 Professional SP1, you've to go for just that version, either 32bit and/ore 64bit! The P-Key will work for both!
    Download the Windows 7 Professional SP1 ISO, install and maybe use the Generic P-Key (which is good for 30 days) for installation of that Windows. After done that, install your other applications before using your final P-Key for a full activation. That way it would assure that everything just works fine and, if it doesn't, you could just do the install again without to get in trouble with the already used final P-Key.

    I would suggest an clean and fully new installation of Windows 7 Pro instead of a try to update from XP!
