Windows assigns a SID (Security Identifier Descriptor) to your Windows installation when it first starts. If you start another Windows installation - you'll have another SID - even if you use the exact same account names, passwords, drive names, etc. As such, it won't work - and that's just one aspect of the problems that you'll face.
Another is that, with the advent of Windows, programs don't just install to the Program Files directory - they install all over your system, to include the Windows directory. And, they establish relationships between these files that will be broken (due to SID, security, ownership, permissions, ACL's, etc) if you move them.
