    Can I uninstall windows and reinstall it later?

    So basically, right now i have a windows partition on my macbook and when i upgrade to an ssd I plan on getting rid of the windows partition, for now atleast as I have no use for it anymore. The only thing I'm worried about is I don't have an install disk or anything as my windows 8 copy was a digital upgrade download.

    So basically my question is, if I completely uninstall windows will I be able to reinstall it again on the same macbook at a later time? Would I just be able to download an iso off and put the serial key in again? I wouldn't want my copy of windows to be wasted or anything.

    Thanks in advance.
