Virtualize Windows 7 for Hyper-V

I have a windows 7 computer, 32 bit which a manager will not allow to be decommissioned.  I have installed a new windows 8 computer but she feels more comfortable having the old windows 7 machine available. I have a windows 2008 server with Hyper-V installed and operational. Can I virtualize the existing computer and run as a virtual machine on my 2008 server and have her Remote Desktop to the virtual machine? What program will I use and are there concerns about the different hardware between the two platforms?

Thanks
Steve
