As long as you are installing on the same motherboard it was first installed on their should be no problem.

**Wright down the COA key and keep it in a safe place.**

Good stuff. They sure don't do you any favors with the font type and size do they? Might be time to write the code in large easy to read letters on the envelop and or a text document for next time.

I know that feeling!
I had that happen to me a few years ago. The font on the OEM COA sticker was printed that small I had to take a photo with my phone and enlarge it just to make out the correct letters. And I have good eyesight.
Glad it's resolved!
