Q.  My system dual boots Windows and Red Hat Fedora.
How do I run Windows on Red Hat Fedora?

A.  Use QEMU.

In a GNOME Terminal windows do this:

dnf install qemu qemu -hda /dev/sda -localtime &
Assuming /dev/sda is your boot drive. This restarts your computer in a GNOME window! Select Windows from the GRUB menu and proceed as if you had booted normally. Warning: I hear really bad things happen if you let it boot into the Fedora again. Be sure to shutdown Windows in the usual way. Don't just click on the close [X] icon.
