Reactivating windows with same cd-key RRS feed

  • Question

  • I downloaded windows 7 from MSDNAA and upgraded my pc to windows 7. I activated it but now i need to do a clean install because i have some issues after the upgrade, basically it was a downgrade from ultimate to professional, not an upgrade. Can i use the same key to activate them after the format?

    From what I understand, your Vista is Ultimate, and you have a Win7 Pro Upgrade?
    Assuming your Vista is legitimate - look here for advice on how to install Win7 clean using an upgrade disk
    You will probably need to activate by phone afterwards.
