    Is it against MS EULA:

    1- to install vista basic in a VM?
    2- to install Vista OEM in a VM( OEM licence is usually tied to mobo, how this will be applied in case of a VM)?

    Thanks

    There goes a long time I read any Microsoft Windows EULA, but if things haven't changed that much or nothing at all, you may only use Windows in one system.

    Now, the question is: Should we consider a VM a system? In my own book, no. A VM is nothing but a feature within a piece of software - machine virtualization.

    Basically, and again in my own book, when ever I install Windows Vista in any VMs, I'm just installing a piece of software (Windows) within another piece of software (machine virtualization).

    So, there's only one machine.

    But, that's me talking... You may consider checking this http://download.microsoft.com/docum...lish_36d0fe99-75e4-4875-8153-889cf5105718.pdf

    It mentions Ultimate, but I believe it talks about all.
