Dual boot M100/FCP

I have set up a dual boot M100/FCP system with AJA LH. I have set M100 and FCP on different partitions and they work fine. My problem is Adobe AE and Creative Suite. I get an error message: "The license for this product has stopped working" when booted on the opposite partition to them. Do I have to install them on each partition as well (using both licenses on one computer) in order to have a normal workflow? Is there any way around this?

You should decide to install one partition first (e.g. the Media 100 partition). Then install and activate all software, including Adobe and Apple stuff. Now clone the partition with Carbon Copy Cloner to the other partition, and your activations should get carried over.
We use Speed Tools Utilities (QuickBack Module) to create the second volume. Our AE CS3 suite works just fine. It has worked for us in the past BOTH on a dual partition and on a dual drive (separate internal boot drives) scenario.
