Windows 7: Dual boot activated (or not)?

Dual boot activated (or not)?

Well people, this may be interesting...

It has come to my lovely attention that when I activated my copy of Windows 7 X64 bit build 7000, my Windows Vista X64 bit (for some weird reason) shows my copy as requesting activation again?

Has anybody else experienced this?

Everyone that is dual booting are having problems with the vista installation like changing stuff and having to reactivate vista too.

well , if that is the case, then I'll proceed with my intention of making my install of Windows 7 X64 the only OS.

I'm very confident that this beta should give me very minimal problems.
