Multiple installation of same operating system on same machine

I have a licensed windows 7 home basic os installed on my pc. Can I install it as many times as I want on the same machine i.e. after formatting the machine, can I install and activate it more than once?

    Of course, just make sure, as you said you format, and use the default installations, as you would not want multiple copies on your hard drive.
    Would be like having multiple mother in laws living with you !
  2. The only possible issue you will may have is wit the activation - once you have done this a few times you can get activation failed messages, bt this is simple to resolve by a quick call to Microsoft Activation line.... :)
