If the key is registered multiples times yes it will freak out.
ET phones home even though you don't do it manually. When M$ gets wind of the same key being used on different systems at the same time, it will quit working in a set time. It's called pirating. Some times they make a big deal out of it. It's wise to just bite the bullet and fork out for virgin copies. Or you could get a bulk license.
One disc, one key, one machine. I paid for all of my operating systems. You should too.
