I am trying to work out a solution that allows me to use a Windows client VM as a gaming environment that I can package as a resalable solution (I own a computer store). So far, it has been extremely challenging with todays solutions. (tomorrow it will be the norm I believe).
At present, unless my other posted question (http://www.experts-exchange.com/OS/Linux/Q_28278201.html
) regarding VFIO
produces fruit, I am hoping a solution that would allow me to use a bootable windows 7 drive within the virt-manager environment.
For instance, I would unplug the host linux drive, and attach a fresh drive and then completely install Windows 7 on that drive.
I would then reattach the linux host drive and boot to it. I would then run virt-manager from a remote computer and wish to access that same physical drive and its boot environment from the virt-manager.
Is this possible ?
If so, it would allow me to access Windows 7 for all the 'normal stuff' like Office, basic development IDE etc but also be available for a multi-boot directly if it was to be used for gaming purposes and needed full on graphics.
What sayeth the group ?
