Default Beta 2 Question?

Hey,

A while back I downloaded the Vista BETA 2 deal that Microsoft offered for free download. I got the email with the product key etc etc, and it stated that "You may install Beta 2 on up to 10 PCs using the same Product Key."

When I first downloaded it, i installed it straight away, which would be counted as number 1. Since, i have installed it onto a different computer, being number 2. Now, if i were to reinstall it onto the first comptuer, is that classed as number 3, because i have only formatted it, it is the same computer...I'm a bit confused here...

Matt

It still only counts as two total.
