Aha, thanks. Q: How many times can I install Windows on my computer before I have to activate Windows again? A: You can reinstall Windows on the same computer as many times as you want because activation pairs the Windows product key with information about your computer hardware. If you make a significant hardware change, you might have to activate Windows again. Oh well, one way to find out!

I always just loaded up my windows, activated then cloned to second hard drive. Then booted to whichever hard drive I wanted in bios.
