"company that supplies the programming software does not support the installation or use on a virtual machine" states this for a reason. They are unwilling to accept liability for any use outside their qualified environment.

Apart from the problem that the operating system is no longer (and has not been for some time) supported, to obtain hardware that is supported should not be difficult. Many industrial computer system manufacturers provide platforms to support legacy systems with varying vintages. While they are not first-tier branded machines, many provide systems that have extended remaining lifecycles and will provide support for your application.

If you are unable to migrate to a later version of the control system, it seems prudent to retain the landscape that was originally qualified and has worked for an extended period.
