Answer
Windows 7 Starter is an OEM product that is bundled with new systems only. Windows Vista Home Basic is a retail product, so you could use that in a virtual machine if you are able to obtain a license for it. Windows 7 Home Basic is sold in certain emerging markets such as India and contains certain activation restrictions.
