Help, activated W7, but wants to do a clean re-install. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I need to reformat my computer and reinstall Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit , which I've activated online.

    I guess the only way to reinstall and 100% clearing the files in my HD is through the boot up cd for w7 install. Is there anyway that I could reinstall & format without disturbing my license?

    Or,

    Can I just reactivate it online? Can it be activated 2 times but on the same pc.

    or

    Can I back-up my license?

     

    Thank you very much.

  • OEM.

    So, I can reactivate it again online? cause if it doesn't works a fresh copy of W7 will cost RM375 in Malaysia, which is a big burn in the pocket. I don't want to spend another RM375.

    Thanks ,
