    I'm afraid not Peterr, MS's stance has always been one license=one computer. Unless you spent thousands of Euros/USD on a volume license key, the answer is no. You can try if you want, I hear sometimes it works, but it is not the expected behavior.

    >>I thought so; it would have been nice to use the virtual os so if I got malware or a problem I could rid the machine of it.
    After having trouble with VMware I tested my pc for its ability to use virtualization and it is fine. I am looking for an os I can use to surf, email and tes new siftware and will hold off on Chrome and Win 8 as they are too new.
