Yes, you will need to purchase another product key if you plan to install it on another computer.


How to purchase additional keys:

Press Windows key + X

Click System

Click View details in Windows Activation

Click the link: Buy Windows for another computer


Yes, you might be prompted to go through the install routine with just the 5 mb web installer, but you don't actually have to do the download, just make the acquisition and the product key will be presented to you in the Upgrade Assistant (you will also have a copy sent to your email address).
