Play by the rules and you should be OK. You agreed to EULA terms when you installed Win7 on one machine, same terms apply every time you do that. There are educational licenses that allow for more than one machine at a time. Don't expect advice on how to break these rules on this forum.

Don't worry, Microsoft would be very happy to let you install, and let you purchase the necessary keys, at the Full Retail price.

As soon as you install you have a certain time (normally 30days) to activate after that time it shuts down until you call or go online.

You have to go on line to activate.

On activation, the OS talks back to home base. It knows...

If you do not activate the OS within 30 days, it will ask you to activate it and shut down one an hour.

It will do an auto check after a certain time period. You will be cut down.

Just buy the keys legitimately.

Via phone. You read a long string of digits into the phone, and it reads a long string back. If all checks, that PC is activated.

One license, one PC.
