As mentioned in Re: windows OEM license in virtual environment you may need to check with the EULA. Microsoft offers licensing classes which last several days and have tons of white papers for licensing. I guess not even someone from Microsoft can answer this question for sure.

However, IMO this would most likley violate the EULA.
