Running VirtualBox from a raw disk.
The previous item.. post.. whatever, was a quick and dirty on using VirtualBox to run a Linux partition inside Windows. This is becoming more and more useful for me as I spend most of my time in Linux Land, but sometimes need to run Windows – then do something quickly on the Linux side. Rebooting becomes more and more of a pain in the arse.
