Can I use same EDS ARM license on dual boot system?

Honored Contributor I

I bought a Cyclone V SoC DevKit and installed the EDS tools on my Windows 7 system, including the ARM license that came with the kit. I have been using the tools successfully for a couple of months, but now I am finding that some utilities, at least in some examples, are better developed in a Linux environment. So I installed Ubuntu on the same system (dual boot). Can I use the same license, since it is the same system with the same NIC, etc? I want to use EDS in both OSs, because I will need to run some Windows based tools as I develop the Linux app. I installed the EDS under Ubuntu, and after launch, it is asking about adding licenses, etc. Does anyone know how to proceed?
