Dual booting question.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
This is an odd question I know, but I'm wondering about it.

Alright here we go...I have about 45 GPUs and 15 TV tuners I need to test and sell. They are mixed....about half are nVidia, the other half is ATi.

I was wondering will it work to have two versions of the same Windows set up on the same activation key? I want to have one copy of Windows Vista set up for Nvidia cards and another for ATi on separate partitions.

Its the same computer right? MS won't give me flak about activating right?

You should be ok. They won't be running at the same time and the motherboard will be the same for both, which is what M$ ties the activation key to.
