what I want to do is run the XP partition that I have already installed.
Like run the applications and Have access to the file system. I
suppose that is virtualbox. But the virtualbox solution proposed
requires me to create a new partition and reinstall all the software again.
Is there a way to run the already installed XP inside virtualbox? Is
there a way to do that? Or do I need to create a completely new guest?
