I just purchased a new laptop with genuine windows 7 product key and I also purchase a windows 8 upgrade.
I am not sure how well I will like the new windows 8, so I am thinking that I want to install another windows 7 on my other partition and use it to upgrade to the windows 8. As a result, I will end up with windows 7 on one parition and windows 8 on another partition.
I am wondering if I can use the same product key to install the windows? I have heard that windows with the same product key might get flagged from microsoft system and maybe blocked from future update and benefits.
I will not use the product key on other pcs or laptops only on this machine. Could anyone please help me out and provide the information?
Thank you very much.
