    I want to try out different things on my PC using Virtualbox.
    I need to give a Windows Serial to launch a Windows image in Virtualbox.

    Can I use my existing serial on my current machine or do I need to get a new serial?
    Do I need a new serial for EVERY instance I want to create?

    EDIT Where should I get the Windows images to use with Virtualbox?

    Thanks.

    Same place(s) you buy legitimate Windows versions for other uses--retailers such as Best Buy and Newegg and Microsoft.

    What is a "Windows Serial"?
