You can use the key to activate windows online, how many times do you want.

kanines,
the following is covered in the link I gave, but here is the quick overview:
ACTIVATE WINDOWS OR CHANGE PRODUCT KEY

View activation status
WIN | type SLUI | ENTER

Change Product Key
WIN | type SLUI 3 | ENTER

Call Microsoft and Manually Activate
WIN | type SLUI 4 | ENTER

WIN = key with Microsoft Logo on top.

"You might have to activate Windows 7 again if:
(...)
You reformat your hard disk. Reformatting erases your activation status. In this case, you’ll have 30 days to activate Windows again."

Do I undersand well?
If I reformat the partition with Windows on my hard drive, I will be able to activate previously used key again even wihout calling?

EDIT:
Sorry I didn't refresh page.
Now I understand everything.
Thank You!
