While we are on the topic of virtual machines, I am curious if anyone has had success running XP on a virtual machine on Linux using an existing XP installed partition (native install).
My machine came with XP installed, and I could only back it up, but not make an install disk (that I know of). And it would be nice to be able to still boot XP natively and have it reflect any work I did while running on a virtual machine.
I already know there must be many issues, like hardware recognition, video settings, etc, and the risk of things getting corrupted. I also know some or all of the recognition is dynamic, so maybe it would fix all the issues during boot time.
