Really this is a problem.  Extracting hard-drive serial number is not normally allowed from userspace.

Next problem if wine was providing that information it could be fake.  If a virtual machine like qemu was providing that information it also could be fake.

Basically what you are asking for would allow piracy of a lot of applications.  Its your choice to have that application sorry it meaning windows.

Finally bound to a harddrive in it self is setting up for hardware failure issues.
