Hello,

If you do a complete restoration, you must use the key provided with the other disk; however in the near future you may get in hot water as it may tell you that your Windows copy is counterfeit, not genuine especially if you attempt to install and update any application related to Microsoft.

Using a not genuine Window may lead after 30 days to the black screen of death.

Regards
