Windows 7: RC1 on 2 Machines

RC1 on 2 Machines

Can I install the same download of Win 7 RC1 on two machines (using the same product key)? or do I need to make a new DVD for each machine?

Hello JAS, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Normally you could use the DVD on any machine, but would need a separate product key per machine. However, since Windows 7 is still in testing, the keys have been working on more than one machine to activate them.

This will change of course when the retail version is released though.

Hope this helps,

Windows 7 Professional x64

I like to run 32 bit on one and 64 bit on the other.

If you find software that is 32 bit can still test it but you have the 64 bit too.

It's an idea.......
