DreamSpark students: Can I reinstall Windows with a key obtained 3 years ago?

    Question

  • Hello,

    I was a studentand in April 2012 I downloaded and I installed a free version of Windows 7 for students.

    By searching on the internet, I discovered that although access to the product key ends 24 months later, in April 2014, the key does not expire.

    Yet in this day (34 months later) I would like to format the hard drive and reinstall the same copy of Windows with the same key. Can I do it?

    In other words, the key I got 3 years ago works perfectly, but I want to use the same key to reinstall Windows 7 after formatting the hard drive. Is it possible or not?
