Hi Friends,

I've this below question on the windows license and couldn't find any convincing answer in the internet.
so posting here.

Due to some issue, If I have to reinstall the Windows 8 on my laptop, will there be any issue with using the same product key or license?

To describe further, here is my current situation.

I had installed Windows 8 on my laptop and registered with the product key/license.
Now it seems like the installation is not proper and I want to reinstall from scratch.

The question I'm pondering is since I've already used the product key/license when I installed for the first time, Will it allow me to use the same product key/license again when i install it the second time (or third time and so on) OR will it stop me saying that this product key/license is already used?

Thanks,
Kiran
