EULA wording & Dual Boot.

Could I have members' views about this slightly odd situation:-

DESKTOP has two internal hard drives:
Drive No:0 has XP(SP2) and a copy of Office Small Business 2003.
Drive No:1 has Vista Home Premium (dual boot).

LAPTOP has XP(SP2) and a copy of Office Small Business 2003.


Microsoft EULA for Office Small Business 2003 says:-
" EULA BY INSTALLING, COPYING, OR USING THE SOFTWARE. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE, DO NOT
INSTALL, COPY, OR USE THE SOFTWARE; YOU MAY RETURN IT TO YOUR PLACE OF PURCHASE FOR
A FULL REFUND, IF APPLICABLE.
1. GRANT OF LICENSE. Microsoft grants you the following rights provided that you comply with all terms and
conditions of this EULA:
1.1 Installation and use. You may:
(a) install and use a copy of the Software on one personal computer or other device; and

(b) install an additional copy of the Software on a second, portable device for the exclusive use of the primary user of the first copy of the Software."

Assuming I would like to test Small Business 2003 running under Vista ideally without uninstalling SB2003 from Drive No:0, would that breach the EULA, even though it would be on the "one computer" and obviously, on that machine, I could only use one copy of SB2003 at a time?.

Presumably one way would be to uninstall from Drive No:0 before installing on Drive No:1 and vice versa after the test on Vista to revert to the original position.

I think you're ok. It states "one personal computer" but makes no mention of how many times on that one computer.

For the record it works fine with Vista.
