because all of the computer's resources are already dedicated to the OS you're currently running. you would have to have the second OS take command of the hard drive controller at least which would mean the primary OS would lose it entirely and cease to function. that's ignoring the fact that it would also have to take over every other resource in the machine. you can't just assign one piece of hardware to the other OS because you need to give it an entire computer (virtual or otherwise) to run on

running an OS inside another is virtualization. you can say "play" all you want but it doesn't change the meaning of the word.

To run an OS within an OS you can use a program called Virtual Box.

So, what prevents you from loading up the software onto an XP box, then virtualizing that box into a VM and then running it? Since the software is already installed will it still run?

Hard disk space.

The WinXP install with the software installed is like 120gb, the drive is only 200gb

hence why I want to run it without having to convert it to a virtual disk image.

Or i'd like more options, to deselect all my games and stuff on that XP box.
