    Normally phone Microsoft and explain and they may give you a activation code -- as long as you have not overused your MAK licenses

    Why not dual boot Win7 and Win8?

      Dual Boot is good one but since i have 8 gb ram i thought why not use it resources andever since i came to know about VMs

      I had a check on license with VAMT and remaining activation is shown zero no more activation left in the license guess i have to call MS and do as you said

      Thank You for the response

        Although the operating system (in your case Windows may install and function properly in a VM it may give you problems when installing it on the physical machine due to devices drivers not required in the virtualized environment!
