UEFI and elilo I would assume... (that's what I'm running here...but no
windows only openSUSE and SLE)

There is a test system (qemu-kvm) here....

That's pretty cool. Wonder if it could be made to work with VirtualBox.

Just install qemu? you notebook is vt capable?

I'm running it here now, was easy to install and running is a breeze.
eg (I have a data partition);


cd data
mkdir kvmhdd
cd kvmhdd
qemu-img-kvm create openSUSE_12.2.img 10G
qemu-kvm -m 1024 -boot d --cdrom /data/repositories/iso_images/openSUSE-GNOME-LiveCD-Build0451-x86_64.iso /data/kvmhdd/openSUSE_12.2.img


Don't forget to add your user to the kvm group, a reboot also helps...

It is capable, just two different virtualization solutions seems like
overkill. But if necessary, I'll install qemu as well. :)
