If you have linked it to your account, then it shouldn't be a problem. It will reactivate upon install.
As long as the purchase was legitimate, even if you have an activation problem, just contact microsoft support to explain and they will reactivate it for you.

You install same windows edition as on your old pc (home or pro).
Then use windows activation troubleshooter to transfer license to new pc.
License transfer doesn't happen automatically. You have to initiate it. Windows on old pc will get deactivated as result of this.
