    Office 2010 Activation

    I have a multi licence for Office 2010 which has been used on the full number of PC's allowed.

    I am now thinking of upgrading several of these to SSD's, with a full install of Win7 on each.

    Obviously my installations of Office 2010 will need activating again, but are there any steps I need to take to allow me to do this?
    Do I need to inform MS in advance, or how do I go about the change otherwise?

    Any advice would be welcome.

    You can choose activation over the phone, when asked, and call Microsoft. Explain the situation and you should be ok.

    I have had to call MS twice in the past for similar situations except I had upgraded OSes with clean installs and had to reinstall Office. A simple call was all it took. MS is generally very responsive to those having legitimate keys.
