Well, you _can_ use the qemu, but it's a lot harder. You'll need to pick up a qemu tutorial to handle that. By default the virtual machine that DSL runs in won't have access to your drives, and there's some specific options to give them access.

Never used qemu so no knowledge of it. I would have to google the internet for info to mount real physical drive partition.

I take that back, it wouldn't be possible. If windows won't give you access to the E drive, it can't pass it on to DSL. Sorry, but qemu'ing linux won't help here.

That does make sense. It still must go through the real OS and it must be able to control it.

Ironically, it would work the other way around. Unfortunately windows won't give you raw access to a device, so it will only pass on a mounted filesystem. If you were in linux emulating windows you could pass it.
