Re: [WIN8] How will Win8pro upgrade affect my Win7 Fam Pack??
I would think that if Microsoft has the ability to activate and uniquely identify three unique systems with the same product key that they'd have a system in place to identify when one & only one of those were activated.
I don't foresee you logging onto one of the remaining systems one day and seeing the "Not activated" screen. If, for some reason, that did happen I would think a call to Microsoft would get things straightened out. It seems silly that they'd invalidate all legit product activations for this scenario.
