Its still on the same PC and only one installation of it exists.
Actually you can have Office 2007 installed on both the Vista & windows 7 partitions and still only use 2 of 3 activations and have 1 license to spare.
When I originally bought Office 2007 I wanted to install it on 2 computers but since I joined this forum the two Computers I own are now duel boots = 4 partitions.
I have Office 2007 installed on 3 of the 4 partitions (3 user License), I just have to remember which partitions I have Office 2007 installed to to avoid an accidental 4th activation.
