I fear that you may be out of luck. Windows deliberately frustrates this use case by profiling its hardware at installation time and at every boot thereafter. If the hardware changes too much, then Windows demands a new license fee. Moving from physical hardware to a VM would probably trip every one of its alarms.
Fortunately modern versions at least allow you to move the installation to a different machine without requiring a reinstall. You might be told you need to relicense it, and it will take some time to reconfigure itself to the new hardware it finds itself running on, but it'll work at least.
