reinstalling Office 2010 on same PC (after clean OS install)

I have Office 2010 (home and business edition). I'll be doing a fresh install of Windows 7 in a couple days. Can I install Office 2010 to the same PC without any activation issues?

Havoc, you might (most likely) have to talk to the microsoft people and explain what you had to do.

Hi,

It depends - I have sometimes been able to activate online without issues, and other times I have had to phone them and explain that I had to reinstall. In the latter cases, they have always assisted me to activate it without any trouble whatsoever.

Did a clean install of Windows 7. I then reinstalled Office with no issues whatsoever.
(not having Java is a good thing )
