I have a Dell xps 17 with a recovery section with the Dell factory image partition which contains the windows install is about 18 gb. I want to mount this as a disk image inside a Vm runninf inisde linuxs virtualbox or vm manager.

Is this possible?

I want to do this because I want the windows licence only for a vm, I don't want to dual boot this windows anymore.

Is it possible to use dells datasafe to export this image
