No you dont have to reload Windows 7. You can use Windows Anytime Upgrade and with enter a key you have already purchaced or buy one from Microsoft.

To open Windows Anytime Upgrade click start then all programs in the icons at the top you will see Windows anytime Upgrade

Good luck!

Only if you go from 32-bit to 64-bit would you need to reinstall.
