Have installed and activated Win 7 ultimate in a virtual machine under hyper-v. I now need to reinstall it. Will I have to produce a new key for activation?

Yes. The VM is a different 'PC'. It needs its own license.

Oh....reinstalling in the 'same' VM? No...you shouldn't need a new license.
I thought you meant the host PC and the VM on the same license.
