Possible to use Windows 7 Home premium twice on the same computer ?

Hello ! I have a Quick question , is it possible to use a Windows 7 Home premium full retail disc twice on the same computer ?

If so, how many?

On the side of the box ( with the disc inside ) it says " for use on 1 computer only "

Please help quickly !

If you are talking about creating a dual boot configuration of Windows 7 on the same machine, then, as far as I know, yes, you can use the same key for both installations..

Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64-Bit

To answer your question I use my copy of Windows on two partitions and I've had no problems whatsoever.

That makes sense because it's physically impossible to run both copies at once and both copies will activate because they use the same hash key to do so.

The reason I install Windows twice? One partition is used purely for running Adobe Design Premium CS4, the other is used for Microsoft Office et al.
