Installing Linux, but keeping windows for VM boot?

Hello,

 

I'm thinking about buying a new thinkpad. I'd like to install linux and wide the recovery partition, but I'd also like to be able to make a Virtual Box vm from the  licence of windows 7 that comes with purchase.

 

Does anybody know if that will be possible from the recovery cds?

 

Thanks

If you mean using recovery cd's in a virtual machine? It wont work that way since the they check for a BIOS  identifier during the first boot.
