comment Booting multiple Windows 7 from same image and then applying correct CD key
I believe that once the activation is done it won't try to re-activate unless you make a significant hardware change to your computer, such as upgrading the hard disk and memory at the same time. How Windows Product Activation (WPA) Works? and How does the new Windows Product Activation (WPA) scheme work?

I think you could try scripting with PowerShell. Here's a tip: slmgr -ipk XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX (this installs the new Product Key). NOTE: I'm not entirely sure if it work 100% with OEM keys....

comment Configuring vmware in windows 7 home basic
One way: You gotta check if the CPU of your laptop supports Virtualization and then install either VMplayer or VirtualBox after that grab the iso of Ubuntu from their site and provide it to your Guest image. The other way: Partition your drive so you can get another drive you can install Ubuntu on and then boot from LiveDisk and install it to that partition. Personally I would go with the first option.

comment Remote Desktop App for Windows 8 Home
Can you just clarify what are you trying to achieve? Trying to remote on the LAN to different PC? Or trying to remote to a different PC over the WAN? In the case of LAN the VNC solution work pretty nice. In the WAN you need to check if the IP is dynamic or just sign up of Dynamic DNS such as No-IP but if you go the route of LogMeIn you don't need that.
