    2.8 MHz G840 - 4 GB DDR3 - 500 GB SATA hdd 7 + 8 upgrade disk

    Can I partition my hdd 100 GB, 100 GB, Balance

    Install a copy of 7 on both 100 GB partitions with the same cd key

    Then upgrade one of them to 8 ?

    Or would that cause problems as far as activation ?

    It certainly causes problems with this forum's rules. If you find a way to use an Upgrade (discounted price) version in a way for which it is not intended instead of paying the going price for a "full" version you are violating the license. Closing.

    Cleaning this up a little ...

    I worded that badly. I did not intend to sound like you had violated forum rules, just that what you are asking about would violate the license, hence would be against forum rules, and so I closed to make sure that neither you nor anyone else ventured into violation territory.
