For win 7 if you use the automated re-activation it will allow you to use windows in both bootcamp and VMWare. I have only tried this with VMWare. I have not been able to fix the issue with office 2010.
I’ve had success with running Windows 7 and 8.1 from my Bootcamp partition under Parallels, simply by activating once under each environment (you may need to use telephone activation and explain your situation).
However, this doesn’t seem to work with Office 2013, I’ve had to pick one of the environments and only run it in that mode. It’s very irritating given that it’s the same installation on the same laptop!
