The only difficulty can be in finding the appropriate drivers required for hardware components not covered by Windows, e.g. sound cards.
You might have noticed that you're not using a legit Windows install disk. It's actually trivial to edit the install files to allow that kind of behavior. But, I suspect it's against the forum rules to advocate bypassing copy protections or simply grabbing a torrent of a pre-registered copy.
