Did you try VirtualBox?
        VirtualBox isn't part of Fedora, and it's not required to do
        what the
        OP's asking about.  The virtualization that comes with Fedora
        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.

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).
2. Virtualbox has a web page on how to convert physical to virtual:
3. Convert to KVM essentially use VMWare's tool to convert to a .vmdk, and use qemu-img to import it into KVM.
