Well, in theory...

Original non-CHR Software ID depends on content of disk and identification of disk (I'm not sure what exactly it is, model, serial number). With real hardware, you can clone content, but not disk identification, so it serves as good copy protection. With VM it could be possible to do both. I remember that in the past I was able to move RouterOS disk from VMware to VirtualBox by configuring disk to use VMware's identification and Software ID stayed the same.

Booting virtual machine from physical USB drive should work too, but it's little less practical and flexible.
People who quote full posts should be spanked with ethernet cable. Some exceptions for multi-topic threads may apply.
