I made a Windows VM with Virtualbox in Ubuntu linux. I used the install disc that came with my laptop (I have a paid license for Windows XP). When I started my VM for the first time, it asked me to activate Windows, and said it will stop working in a month if I don't do this.
Is the a maximum number of times I can activate a VM? Am I legally allowed to run Windows in a VM with my laptop's license? I have a dual-boot set up--if I activate my VM, can I continue to use Windows natively?
