Autocad in virtual machine

Activation isn't working. I tried installing it in a linux KVM guest OS - XP. I'm wondering if it's because the software is looking for a hard drive serial number that it won't get from a virtual disk image. Or maybe it will. should, can. I can get it to activate and run on an old XP laptop, but the GPU isn't up to the task, so I uninstalled it. I deleted the XP virtual machine so I can start from scratch.


Any help is appreciated


Thanks in Advance
