Is it possible at all?

I mean, obviously DHCP + static alias is not working. I am looking for a workaround, like adding an interface and binding the static IP to that.

Is it doable somehow?

I don't think so that windows can have 2 simultaneous ip adresses on one interface... with one exception ipv4 and ipv6 address – Tomas Mar 10 '11 at 0:25
@Tomas of course windows can have two address on the same interface - but they both have to be static – Joel Coehoorn Mar 10 '11 at 3:39

No, this is not possible.

You can easily add additional IPs to Windows boxes (Go to IPv4 Properties > Advanced, then click Add on IP addresses), however, this option is disabled automatically when DHCP is enabled.
