Activating windows in a new hard disk

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

I would like to know how to reinstall and activate Windows Vista again in a new hard disk as the first hard disk was damaged.

Can Windows Vista be activated only one time or can it be activated in a new hard disk again, using back up and restore?
