I have a desktop PC currently running Windows 11 Beta, but previously was running Windows 10 Pro. It is not my primary PC (I have several other laptops for that), it is more my tinkering PC. I need to better understand multiple flavours of Linux for employment and personal reasons. I have a couple of Raspberry Pi's running a couple of different Linux distros (Ubuntu Server and Desktop), but I would also like to learn a Linux version such as Elementary on x86/x64 chipset. However, I don't want to lose the Windows installation, in case I ever need it, which is why I don't really want to dual boot it.
So I am wanted to convert the existing Windows installation into a VM running under Elementary OS. Any suggestions? Or I being too ambitious?
