    You may be prompted to reactivate the product. You also may encounter not being able to do it over the Internet (automatically) if you have installed and activated multiple times before, in which case you phone in and jump through the question hoops. If Windows is installed on the old drive, it may need reactivation too.

    If your new drive comes with software, see if it includes a cloning feature with capacity expansion to copy the old drive contents to the new drive bypassing the need to reinstall, although you still may get a reactivation notice.
