Recently I bought and installed Windows 8 Professional. Some time later I bought an SSD drive and cloned the original disk (with Windows 8 on it) to the new one.
Now I have problems with it, since I forgot to change partition align and some other things, I have some problems with this installation at startup (strange errors appear when the computer wakes up from hibernation).
I want to do a clean install to the SSD drive, but my Windows copy is already activated. If I format my SSD drive and install Windows 8 Professional on it, can I use the activation key that I have already used, to activate the new Windows installation? All hardware is the same, except for the hard drive.
