comment Booting a native Windows install in Virtualbox: is it possible?
About 4 years ago I've installed a new Linux using qemu on a partition that was not used by the current Linux. This allowed me to upgrade the server with only 5 minutes downtime - just to reboot.

Another problem is file locking. If the first OS will lock a file the other OS will not be aware of the lock and can write into that file. But if the partitions are mounted read-only in both OS it is OK.

comment Booting a native Windows install in Virtualbox: is it possible?
The corruption is caused by the fact that part of the filesystem state is keept in the memory of each kernel. For example the dirty pages are kept in memory for few seconds and meantime the other kernel can change the same files, jurnal or fs structure at the same time. For example you delete a file from one OS and meantime the other OS will create another file in the same folder. Because the 2nd OS has a older copy of the folder cached in memory, it could write it to disk with the cached info (first file not deleted) and new file added. The firs OS fill not notice the added file.

You can have filesystem corruption. But there are filesystems that allow to be mounted by two different machines (e.g. GFS). See: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Global_File_System
