    iTunes trouble in Linux. how do I dual boot Windows in Linux?

    I recently bought the first season of "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic" from iTunes, but I cannot play it on Ubuntu 11.10. Upon researching why on the Internet, I later found that iTunes encrypts all of their videos so that it can only play in authorized systems. I currently cannot find a way to decrypt the videos, but I did that it uses the same algorithm of encrypting songs on the AAC audio stream, and that there is a legal controversy over encryption or decryption of DRM media. Because I cannot access the videos in Linux, I have to boot into my separate Windows 7 partition just to pony.

    How do I boot Windows 7 inside Linux without rebooting?

    I would try VirtualBox, which is in the repositories and installable from the Software Center.
    However...
    ...is this an existing Windows7 partition?
    I'm thinking about it

    Virtualbox is an emulator. you might be abel to run it with it if not then booting into windows is the only option. i stay away form various download schemes that lock you into anything.
