If you read the EULA, you will probably come to the conclusion that it
is not even legal to install one copy of any language Vista in two
different partitions and dual boot them, or install a second copy on a
hard drive which you then remove from the computer. It doesn't matter
that it is impossible to run the two installs at once -- it only
matters that two installs exist at the same time, and M$ doesn't want
you to have a free and easy way to get running again if the original
installation has a problem. On the other hand, few people, even Carey
Frisch, argue against making a image of your hard drive with Norton
Ghost or True Image, which is not very different from having a second
installation on a second hard drive.
Your English key will likely NOT work for Korean Vista.
