I'm looking for a freeware virtual machine program that will run under Windows 7 x64, which will allow me to clone an existing physical Windows XP x32 drive to a virtual disk.

The sysinternals application Disk2vhd will hot copy an online windows instance using VSS and output a valid Windows virtual machine. From there you can import the VHD into Virtualbox and run what was your physical machine as a virtual machine.
