    Yes - because teh Key is still the KMS Key.
    You need to change the Key to the one from your Windows package - if it will accept it - and then activate that.
    If the machine won't accept the Key (because it's an upgrade Key rather than a clean install Key) then you'll have to try telephone activation and persuade an operator to issue an override.
