I'd have to disagree that the EULA allows you use one license on the computer AND on one VM. If you read it carefully it says "Instead of using the software directly on the licensed computer, you may install & use the software within only one virtual..blah blah)" The keywords here are INSTEAD OF. In other words, it's saying you can install your OEM copy on a VM INSTEAD OF using it directly on the physical computer. So you can do it one way or the other, but not both ways.
