Default Windows activation upon reinstalling...

Will windows tell you that the product has already been activated? I dont really understand how this works (for reinstalling i mean) or will it ask you for your 20 number key you got after activation?

BTW: I do have a legit copy of WinXP so dont tell me about some copied crap.

As long as your hardware config hasn't changed, you should still be able to use the same number. Even if you don't have the number written down, you can just re-activate the same way you did the first time(via phone or internet).

You are allowed to reactivate the software an unlimited number of times. But if you reactivate a lot, with totaly different hardware configs, they will start to get suspicous.
