comment Problem with Windows activation on a VM (Virtual machine)
Yes, that's because you have an OEM copy of the operating system. They are designed to be non-transferable. See here: "The steps in the article are effective only on Volume License media. If you try these steps on OEM media or on retail media, you will not change the product key ... That is, the channel (MSDN, retail, OEM, Volume License, and so on), the SKU (Windows XP Professional, Windows XP Home Edition, and so on), and the language (English, French, and so on) must match between the product key and the media."

AHCI to IDE should be pain free, the other way around causes problems. As long as you have regular backups changing any setting shouldn't be a problem.

comment Activation of Bootcamped Windows 7 in VMWare Fusion, is it legal?
It's the English Windows 7 Home Premium EULA. As far as I can tell this EULA is not localised to any particular English-speaking country.

comment Is there a legal way to obtain Windows 7 DVD?
+1 for you! I didn't realise the ISOs were available online as DDL with Microsoft's blessing. Although I am not sure if using the retail media is the same as using the OEM media, I have been caught up previously when using an OEM key with retail media.

Or you could just burn a disc. It's not like having a burnt copy of the media is illegal.
