Please explain in detail what you are trying to do and ask in the correct forum. Your heading says you have Win7 but you have posted in XP forum

Suggest you read the EULA for your version of windows before proceeding

You can but the second computer won't be legal unless it too has the coa sticker on it.

The biggest problem is when computer 1 is a Dell ,hp Acer etc,and computer 2 is another brand. You will usually need to do a search for drivers. You will also need to use the dell keys..... to install and then update the keys for the other brand. Microsoft has a free key updater to do this.

It has been an ongoing debate the legality of this but I feel Microsoft wouldn't have a key updater if they expected people to go out and buy a cd for every brand of computer as the coa is the license. (Just my opinion and yes I have read the EULA .

If you are asking "Can I use the same keys on two computers."...yes.
"Can I activate both" Yes
"Can I update both" Yes
"At some time will one or both receive a message that the license has already been used and one or both copies are illegal?" Yes

Hope this of some help.
