    No problemo here... try installing with no serial then input serial/install crack later.

    Is this an official version? The only way to legally install an official version of Windows 7 on multiple PCs is to use a VLK license.

    If it's a pirated copy then you need to install without key and enter the key later.

    in my experience its always been that way.
    you know, with one serial being for one license and all.

    @op: basic logic, one serial per install. if you're like me and don't have that many serials, then look up 7loader

    VLK licenses haven't existed since Windows XP.

    I was asking in reference to a retail copy, no pirate stuff. I've installed copies of XP and Vista on 3 different machines with the same legit serial, had no issues at all with activation & updates, and I didnt expect a change with 7....just curious if anyone around here with a legit copy has actually tried it [​IMG]
