Change Windows 2003 Server Product Key

I installed Windows 2003 Server Standard with a used product key i had from
another job i did 1 year ago. I have purchased the product key lic and cd.
I have not activated the product. I have 1 day left.

Can I just change the produxct Id and activate? When I change the product
id key in the activate windows by phone, i get bad product key and will not
let me change it. I think this is because I install the service patch 2.

Is there any why to change the number with out having to reformat?

Any help please!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

This might help:

If this was my server then I would first create & test a full backup.
