Yes it can but

As it is a Server OS not as Desktop OS you may find that some of the hardware doesn't have drivers.

Also being a NB it's going to be slow, but it will run.

As this will be a Virtual Machine it doesn't really matter as it's not directly Interfacing with the Hardware. It's just Interfacing with a Software Generated Hardware Layer.
