Not sure if you can set the hardware ID of a guest disk to the same ID as the one from your host disk.
I think it depends on the type of hardware ID that the software verifies.
But if you can change it then yes, it's not a problem.
Your VM is isolated from the host. It does not see the host disk, as such it does not cause any conflicts.
