Windows activation relies on the BIOS. -- It should not work if it was an OEM activation, it might have been retail or volume license.

That will not work, VMware vCenter Converter does not capture the hardware, it only capture the software and modify the core drivers of the system. -- trying to activate will fail when the activation notice the different motherboard.

comment How can I USB boot a VM in VMWare Workstation 9?
@Tanner It work fine with me, however one thing you need to take care of, when you set it up, it is assigned to a specific physical device by number, like: Device: \\.\PhysicalDrive2, and when you remove it and/or restart the host computer, it might get assigned a different number and will require to re-create a new harddisk, and the old reference could be pointing to a totally different drive.
