Windows in Qemu, Activation Question...


I have a legal-ish question. I just installed Windows XP home... in a .img file using qemu! I'm really happy, because it runs really well, and I don't even have to devote more than 3 gig to said RAM-hog. I'd like to delete my other Windows Partition, but I just noticed the pesky activation taskbar item. Can I activate it and not get sued? I'm installing it on the same computer that the CD came with. I figure the MAC address should be the same, and Macrosoft shouldn't know the difference. Please let me know... I have 30 days.

Thanks,
-Peter

cDizzle - reread the rules so you can see why your url is no more.
