No it will either fail to activate and you will be given a number to ring or it will go through without any problems. If you have to ring the number just tell them you have re-installed the OS and they will let you though to the automated system that will give you a code to enter. Did it 3 times in a day once.

I find that unless you make major changes to your system the activation will go through without any problems.

I accidently installed the same copy on 2 different PCs in a weekend and had no problem activating both machines.
