I know that most VM programs don't give anything more than a generic graphics "card" but I did find this guide. I can't speak for it's effectiveness because I don't use VirtualBox. How to Enable Windows 7 Aero Glass in VirtualBox

I can confirm that this does work on VirtualBox as I did try it a couple years ago and had no issues. However, I tend not to bother using Aero in my VMs now, as I like to keep them streamlined as much as possible so I don't need to allocate too much RAM/Video Memory when running more than one. I usually just stick with the basic Windows theme for VMs.
