The Windows 7 EULA states 1 copy per computer so installing the same copy of Win 7 to multiple partitions using the same install key is a violation of the EULA.
LOL.

You better tell everyone using Windows System Image.

Windows 7 x64 Ultimate and numerous virtual machines
 
 

Enterprise software is designed for multiple install using the same key. This is what corporate, collages and anyone involved in virtual machines in a very serious way will be using. The same key can be used thousands of time and is normally linked to an in house sever to update the activation or not as required. If you walk off with the colleges laptop after a while as it cannot talk to the server and veruify the key it will stop working. This is not the same as the consumer version of Windows as you do need multiple keys for multiple installations.

USB Drive + Multiple Partitions
I have a 16GB flash drive that has 2 partitions on it (NTFS for my day-to-day files, and FAT32 for the Mac OSX computers at school since they can't write NTFS). However, windows can only see the NTFS partition. I'd love to have 1 partition, but since I have files bigger than 2GB I need NTFS....
