    I need to make a bigger partition and I want to know if I can reinstall Windows. I'm afraid that I won't be able to enter my product key again. So, before I reinstall, I want to know if I can activiate it again.

    Worst case scenario you will be prompted to call microsoft for an activation by phone, but since it is the same hardware you probably won't even have to do that.

    You could also consult the guide I compiled from the last thread about this to resize without reinstalling. http://guides.macrumors.com/Extend_or_Resize_Boot_Camp_Partition
