Yes both are possible.
If you're using a dual operating system its my suggestion to you that you install OSX on a different HDD and not a partition.
A product exists called WMware fusion seen here:
This will allow windows to be run on your desktop.
I agree with you.

So basically to sum up what the others have said, it is possible to run a OS in an OS. This is called a virtual machine and allows you to experiment with different OS's or use apps that are only supported in certain OS's (Like Apple's developer software - Mac OSX only.)
The two main Virtual Machine (VM) platforms used to run VM's are:
Oracle's free VirtualBox: https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Downloads
VMWare's line of products, most common of which is Workstation: https://my.vmware.com/web/vmware/info/slug/desktop_end_user_computing/vmware_workstation/10_0
VMWare's products look nicer, but both programs run VM's just as equally.

I am running Windows 7 trying to get Windows 7 installed using VIirtualBox. I have 2 drives Windows 7 is on a Sandisk 250GB SSD, second drive is partitioned D:\, E:\, F:, G;\, and H:\ . I try to install Windows on my 500GB SCSI Hard Drive \G my games Drive.
Virtualbox will list my DOS files as being on \R:and my windows files on \S:. I have run FDISK and it shows Partition as C;1, Status as A, and 5114 Mbytes some say use no more than 2 MB and 64 MB ram. Never the less even though it shows C: as a partition when I type Format C: I get invalid drive specification error. what am I doing wrong?
