USB flash drive for OS installation

By jonathon1 ·
If I have 3 copies of Windows 7 that I want to install on 3 separate computers, can I configure one USB flash drive to install on all 3 using the 3 separate product keys from the 3 Windows 7 disks or do I have to take the time to configure 3 separate USB lash drives, one for each computer?

One single usb drive should be sufficient, provided you have downloaded three different product keys.

Don't forget that these installs will begin to expire (shutting down every 2 hours) in March of 2010.

However, using 3 separate usb drives will be necessary for the full retail versions of Windows 7, which will become available beyond 22nd October this year.

I do completely agree with this statement "However, using 3 separate usb drives will be necessary for the full retail versions of Windows 7"
