1.) No - one license per pc, unless you bought the windows 7 home premium family pack-which allows 3 installations per one product key. They are not available anymore.

2.) You can download them at the digital river official Microsoft site where they have untouched Iso files: (You will need a product key to activate)

Official Windows 7 SP1 ISO from Digital River ę My Digital Life

3.) No, Windows 7 professional and above is required. However there are other options, like vmware player.

4.) Windows 7 support ends in 2020. See product life cycle link here:

...the answer is no.

Yes, the OP could dual boot...
...but the OP did not mention having a valid XP key?

And to answer the OP about XP's safety..., XP is not safe
...XP Mode can be frozen - thus a bit safer.
thank you man . i get the point
