Using Same Product Key..

Just a quick question , let's say for example I decide to reinstall windows on the same Computer , can I use the same product Key label that I used before , or would I need a new one. What would I need to do in order to get a new product Key to activate Windows?

Hello Rawad,

Yes, you will be able to activate with the same product key (on the COA sticker) on the same PC. If you have any issues activating online, then you should be able to activate by phone instead.
