How can I keep the Hardware ID?

I have Windows 10 installed and need to use software that uses the hardware ID to keep the license active. When stopping the VM instance and turning it back on, the hardware ID changes where there is "X", keeping the rest of the ID
How can I keep the hardware ID? I attach the software that is used to get the HID

You can set the system UUID in:
smbios1: uuid=<UUID>
