Is there any problem with using VMware to run a 2nd copy of windows home server on a WHS with 2 separate licenses for 20 users?

Trying to set up a budget server for 20 users for image backup.
Ordered a i3 windows home server with 4gigs ram to be a server. Also have two 1.5 TB Harddrives, plan to use one for the Virtual Machine and the other for the backup in this system. In the past I've used WHS for up to 7 users, but know that there is a built in limitation of 10 users. Is there going to be a problem making this work?
Seems like it should work in theory. Has anyone done this tho?
