Home Learn Linux Linux Answers Desktop How to virtualize an existing multiboot setup?
Answers
  • 1st make Wind7 the host OS. Essentially create a vmdk file for the ubuntu drive and point virtualbox at it using a bootable grub mount as the boot media with new vm with a disk of the desired size and add existing ubuntu disks as additional disks to the vm. Mount physical ubuntu partitions and copy their contents to the virtual partitions. Reboot the vm from the virtual disk. Same as for fedora. This is a gist of it, but note, there r a several caveats / likely a lot of little details that u have to take care of. (This is my opinion, hope u will find more convenient way).
