Yes, in my experience the absolute worst case from using an OEM key on a new drive is you call the phone activation service which takes about 10 minutes and you're good to go.

Yes you can, at worst, you will need to use slui.exe to activate windows. 

Thank you guys! :D

If i wipe windows off of my PC completely and reinstall windows from a usb can i use the same product key that i used before? (I have a prebuilt and there is a product key on the side of my case and i was told i can only use that same product key once and I don't think they're correct) I also just got a new M.2 and I really want to reinstall windows on it. Answer Asap please :) [I'm just impatient i dont wanna sound like a d**k]
