To convert a Windows partition to a Virtual Machine can be done in a few ways. 1. Use VMWare's P2V converter. This will convert the data in the partition to a .VDK file. You can then import this into Virtualbox. I don't know if you can do the same with KVM (Fedora's built-in virtual machine).How to do this with VirtualBox?On Fri, Mar 20, 2009 at 8:06 PM, Mike Burger <mburger bubbanfriends org <mailto:mburger bubbanfriends org>> wrote:Paul W.

I have installed F10 on one partition and Windows XP on the second partition.

The virtualization that comes with Fedora works just fine.That being said, and the fact that the OP wasn't specific about which VM system he wanted to use, if a specific one was in mind, VirtualBox works wonderfully, so far, in my limited use, if he's interested in that option.
2. Virtualbox has a web page on how to convert physical to virtual: <http://forums.virtualbox.org/viewtopic.php?t=11279&sid=b4e5df8dc43a979aec9996896693dfef> -- Jerry Feldman <gaf blu org> Boston Linux and Unix PGP key id: 537C5846 PGP Key fingerprint: 3D1B 8377 A3C0 A5F2 ECBB CA3B 4607 4319 537C 5846
