    I would guess it is a one time install on a system, since its the same concept that OEM computer makers such as Gateway, Dell, etc, with their system disks even if you unstall windows out of the system and try to install windows on another system it won't let you, and since that is also consider a oem windows verison, So I would have to say you can only do it with the retail verison (box).
