I got 2005 working in XP mode, but I can't speak for 2008. Presumably it would work, but you can't ever say for sure with this stuff.

Whatever Graphics Card you have with Windows 7, In Xp mode only 4mb T3 Video Card will be detected.

In my opinion, make a dual OS installation with XP and install. Even though you can install Inventor 2008, It is definitely going to need more Video memory. 4MB Will not be enough. Go for Dual OS Installation
