I don't know if it will successfully install or not, but it's definitely not included in the license. The license is for one computer.

You won't be able to activate both copies. So your 10% feeling is the correct one.

You should be able to use the physical disc provided it is a retail copy, however you need to contact microsoft in order to obtain a second liscence key.

In essence, it will stop working. Make sure that you backup any data on it within the 30-day grace period.

Hi hiti3 - Yes, as others have said, you can only install Windows 7 on one PC (unless you have the Family Pack which will upgrade 3 PC's). If you do install on 2 computers, Windows will stop working and become non-genuine. I'd recommend against it.
