1. CUCM 5 and up checks hardware every boot

2. the registry hack you refer to, to make the install think it is an MCS works only on windows based versions of CUCM.

3. CUCM 6 will install on VMWARE with a "demo" license. 50 DLUs and single server.

you may install CM5/CM6 on VMWare. I did that many times. but you're not going to get support from Cisco TAC on it.
