Could you provide additional information of which image type to use with windows and how to load it with the qemu software?

I'm guessing. Hopefully someone else can confirm. Take an ext3.img.bz2 file, use bunzip to convert it to an ext3.img file, and it will be about 512Mb of disk image with partition table and ext3 first partition. Then direct qemu to boot from it.

qemu -hda filename.ext3.img

Alternatively, use qemu-img to convert the raw image to qemu format.

qemu-img convert filename.ext3.img filename.ext3.qemu

Then direct qemu to boot from it.

qemu -hda filename.ext3.qemu
