Does Upgrading SSD prompt new Windows 8.1 key?

Hi I am a newbie here but have read posts from time to time so far.
I am going to upgrade my SSDs in my laptops with windows 8.1 proWMC ugraded tru windows 8.0 proWMC legit key. I used this legit win 8.0 pro key on my 2 laptops' 3 SSDs (one is for storage use now, two others for OS, one in each) and all activated w/o any problem. Now, when I replaced the SSDs of both laptops will I need a new key or just need to reactivate it? Thanks

    Just re-activate. You can change the hard drive a certain number of times before you need to contact Microsoft, though I don't know exactly how many changes are permitted.

    Thanks Phillip, If I call them they would say only one computer, but I already activated it on my two personal computers. so far activated it on 3 SSD of 2 laptops. I need to find out how many times. Thanks again.
