Windows 7: Vista to 7, but with an already used licence

Windows 7 Home Premium x64
Vista to 7, but with an already used licence

Ok, so I have a retail copy of Windows 7 Home Premium, and I installed the 64-bit version on my main computer, and the 32-bit version on my other, however, I had to use the registry workaround to activate it on both of them. My question is, would I be able to install and activate on a third computer (probably the 64-bit)using the registry workaround? I don't care if it "violates" the EULA, as long as it passes the genuine test I don't care.

I will be using all three of these computers for personal use and I don't intend on selling any of them.
