My understanding is that the license is valid only when running directly on the hardware it is registered to, and VirtualBox doesn't count because the license has no way of telling what the hardware it is running on. There wouldn't be any way of making it work, short of having the license work on ANY hardware.
That is not so. A retail license can very well be installed in vBox or VMware. I am running 8/8.1 in VMware Player since the day I bought it. And I can run it on any system that has VMware installed.
OEM licenses should also work if they are first installed in virtual. But transferring them from a physical system to a virtual system is another story.
