I've looked all over for an answer to this question.
I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium. Can I install that same copy of Windows 7 from the retail DVD in a virtual machine without experiencing license or activation issues (like invalidating my host OS license
I frequently experiment with software trials and I'd like to do that in a VM on the same OS that acts as the host.
I created a vhd with Disk2VHD from my OS partition and tried booting from it in Virtual Box, but it went in to a loop - "Loading Windows files", so that method doesn't work.
