Reinstall same OS but different language - impact on license ?

    Hi

    We have a machine that was originally licensed with Windows Vista Business
    OEM, but has currently XP Professional installed, using the downgrade
    entitlement.

    The XP Professional is in english language but the user now want's to have
    it in spanish language.

    So, we were planning to do a clean install with an XP Professional Spanish
    media and re-use the original license key.

    Would this work or would we need to buy a new license ?

    Thanks

    New license. The English key will not work with the Spanish media.
