I converted a running Win7 to a VM. Of course that triggered activation. I was not able to activate online. Only the phone option was working. When I told the employee of MS my intention to move Windows to a virtual machine and not using a physical PC anymore activation was possible.

Several updates of virtualbox caused no problem. Only the last one to 5.1.18 r114002 (Qt5.5.1) triggered activation again. I assume the issue is with the virtual drivers, which can be seen as hardware change.
