What Happens If You Have A Real Copy Of Windows 7 With Real Serial Number?

If you do that, you are legally committing a punishable crime.

With Windows, Microsoft is asserting LEGAL control over YOUR computer. They tell you what you can and can not do. http://en.windows7sins.org/

Here is a short list of free Operating Systems that don't restrict users.

(Free as in Freedom) http://www.gnu.org/ http://www.debian.org/

http://chakra-linux.org/

http://linuxmint.com/

http://www.ubuntu.com/

You can do everything on them that you can do on Windows, but better, easier, and more securely. If you've never used GNU/Linux before, I recommend Mint, or Ubuntu. You can download them for free and burn them to a disc or buy a installation disc. GNU/Linux is trusted by Governments, Corporations, and Organizations all over the world to power Servers much more than Windows, and at an ever increasing rate, Desktops and Laptops. A lot of tablet/phonePCs actually run an Operating System based off Linux, called Android, as do most other devices such as routers and modems. Installing GNU/Linux will solve your problem and also exorcise the evil proprietary operating system from your computer.

List of popular GNU/Linux and BSD-based distributions.

You could install on both.

But the 2nd one will be locked out when you try to activate it.

Unless its the Home family edition which allows upto 3 computers to be installed.

As soon as you install the second machine it will refuse to activate through the Microsoft site. It will report itself as a pirated copy and can cancel the original activation. No more security updates. And probably will lock the computer after 30 days.
