One machine and yes you can reinstall it. They keep track of when you activate a license. If you activate it often, it will reject allowing you to activate it. You will need to call MS and get them to manually activate it for you.
If you install/reinstall say once every six month or so, you generally won't have a problem. It's installing the same license over and over in a short amount of time that sets off the manual activation.
1 license = 1 install. Make sure you buy it from a place like Newegg and make sure you buy the OEM license version
otherwise you will spend more for you OS than you need too.

There is a good chance that you don't like me, but there is a better chance that I don't care.
If I'm not insulting you, I'm probably not aware that you exist.
