turning my windows partition into a virtual drive
 
Is there a way (either through Linux or Windows) to turn my Windows 7 x64 partition into a virtual drive that I can use through VirtualBox in my Linux partition?

Its an OEM install so I can't just make a new vdrive install from the disks.

Nope.

Actually, just found this

which will make a vmware image out of a physical disk, which can be used in VirtualBox

Please be sure to let us know how it goes! I'm considering doing something like this myself.

Me too, actually. I've got a WinXP drive in my main desktop machine that I think would be neat to try and image to get it working in a VM.
