It doesn't, just make sure to backup the NTLite directory or File-Manage License-Export the activation file.
Also don't change hardware or VM settings.

Which hardware changes will cause the activation file to fail?
Can the Home Edition only be activated five times?

Can't answer the first one, too many ears.
When you spend all 5 activations, contact me for a reset, if not requested too often, you have nothing to worry about.
With proper backup of the activation file, you should not need more than 1 per machine that you own.
VMs are the only pain point, as people don't understand that even cloning the VM randomizes its hardware serial numbers.
So if it must be a VM for testing, just make sure to treat it like a real machine, and use snapshots to make sure you can always come back to the known state.
