I was wondering if it's possible to have windows 7 on multiple computers without paying a fortune...? Can anyone help?

The Microsoft End User License Agreement is for one system only.

So how do small computer shops install windows on every computer? There's no way they pay for each of those... are they all illegal copies?

As I told you in my response to your PM, legitimate computer shops use OEM licensing for which they pay Microsoft.

Hello -
Please read the (mainly second half) of This Topic Re:Licensing FAQ - Microsoft -
Only under certain circumstances can a Builder / Maker produce several OEM licenses that are Bulk Purchased.

Cloned versions made by some shonky repair shops are actually illegal and can lead to prosecution by law. A New license is required for each New install -

Original CDs / DVD can be used for Repair Install of the same Original Installed version only, but not for New Installing -

Thank You -
