|Richard59 I deal with an entire companies licensing and have for years. I have had conversations with Microsoft employees concerning multiboots in the 2000's.|
You can not take one word out of the statement "You may install, use, access,
display and run one copy of the Software on a single computer" like you do with "install"
Point here is you can only use, access, display and run ONE copy on ONE computer in a multiboot situation. You will also find that registering that one copy on the one machine twice is no problem with microsoft. They are only looking for the same copy on a DIFFERENT machine.
Now this would be a different story if you installed xp then loaded a vm and then installed the same xp again. Now you would be running the same copy twice which is a clear violation of the eula.
Answers are only as good as the information you provide.
