Where to find keys?

I installed windows 7 on my desktop a while ago and loved it! I remember it being easy to get a windows 7.

I thought it would be great to get windows 7 on my tablet pc and now its asking me for a key. Do I use the one that I use on the desktop? Where do I get a new one?


Which build have you installed? (Example: Beta = 7000 OR RC = 7100)

Yes you can use the same key that you used on the desktop as long as your installing the same build and not one of the potential RTM builds which are 72xx.. ;)

You can also get keys here: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windows-7/download.aspx

You simply sign in using your Windows Live ID and the next screen will have a key.. ;) They'll work for the RC and a few of the post-RC builds but not the potential RTM builds.. ;)
