You could always set up something like VMWare player? That's a free and straightforward way to quickly set up a virtualization environment on your personal computer for testing purposes.

It would be helpful if you have plenty of memory, and a CPU that is virtualization-capable, with virtualization support enabled in the BIOS.

vmware is better from any other product for virtualization. Try vmware for sure.
