Can Virtualbox do this?
Is it possible for virtualbox to have a virtual machine linked to a bootable partition. E.G. i have a windows partition, along with my 2 linux distros, and i was wondering if i could virtualize the windows partition under linux, that way i dont always have to boot up to windows just to use a few programs and i can keep my sessions together.
I know parallels does this, does anyone know if ANY other free virtualization software can do this?
feel free to ask me to clarify that, i can't think of a better way to word it right now.
