My linked-clone machine is down for now and I need to re-clone it from the original machine.

The problem is that I have use a Windows 7 license key on this machine, ie. if I delete it and clone the new one, the license is gone; to keep the license remain I may need to clone the hard disk only.

So my question is how to re-clone a machine and transfer the key?

  • Keep in mind you can reactivate Windows licenses. If it doesn't work automatically, you can call to reactivate. I've done it - it works – uSlackr May 3 '12 at 22:57
  • @uSlackr My problem is the license is once activated I'm afraid. – Nam G VU May 3 '12 at 23:19
  • Yes, but they will likely allow you to re-activate it. – uSlackr May 4 '12 at 0:36
  • Is the problem that you don't know the product key? – Paul May 4 '12 at 5:12
  • @Paul No it is not. I know the product key. – Nam G VU May 4 '12 at 8:00
