    No you do not need a new key. I actually use EaseUS Todo Workstation in these kinds of instances. Especially that you are going from one size of hard drive, to a different size.

    Most installs of 8 I have cloned, are not even 100 GB. Last one I did was maybe 85 gb in size.
    what do i do now i dont have a format cd or anything :/ store is miles away from me :/
