Windows 7: Re-used family pack activation issue following disk crash

Re-used family pack activation issue following disk crash

I bought and used all three licenses of a 3 pack Windows 7 Home Premium set. One of the computers had a hard drive crash so I've rebuilt it and used the 3 pack disk again. Unsurprisingly the activation thinks that it's not a valid copy.
Is there a way round this or do I have to buy it again? It seems a bit harsh that you can't continue to use something that you've paid for just because the disc crashed.
Any ideas?

Win 7 Family Pack
I installed a second copy of Windows Home Premium on my Netbook. I now get a message 'Invalid Copy'. My question is the 'UPGRADE' is not really an upgrade but instead I need a new key. Will a Family Pack overlay an allready installed win 7. I will not be upgrading from XP or Vista.

Family Pack
Hello, I just picked up the family pack last night and it said to have 32bit and 64bit discs in the box, but when I open it it only had one disc? Now My question is does that one DVD have both 32 and 64 in it?
