  • Question

  • Once I purchase the genuine product key and get legal, will I have to reload all of my other software and drivers? I know this sounds like a stupid question, but I had to ask.

  • Well, for most cases no. You can use the product key update tool to change your system over without having to reinstall your original software - unless the system is too tampered to be repaired properly (thus requiring a clean reinstallation).

     

    You can read about the tool here: www.microsoft.com/genuine/selfhelp/pkuinstructions.aspx
