No. 1 CD Key per Machine, unless you have a corporate license that permit you to use 1 key for many machines.

If they believe you.

My Home Edition won't activate anymore, and they won't let me use it again, they think i'm lending the disc out, when it's my personal disk, always hidden from everyone else.

No body is forcing you not to use it, but the EULA for personal copy states 1 key per machine. Not like anyone reads or obey the rule. So who cares right? I don't....

you just have to call and tell them the right lie. they will give you a new installation id, not a serial. I have one copy of xp home that I put on at least 10 computers and I got them to activate it
