if you are not touching the harddrive on which win7 is installed u can add new hd as slave without installing win7 again but if you changing the primary harddrive on which win7 is installed so u will have to reinstall win7 again and yes u can use the same key there.

Yeah, you can use the same key, as long as you are installing on the same system, the restriction is if you are installing windows on 2 different computers using the same product key.
