    Install Windows under Boot Camp, and you can still access it from within Fusion or Parallels.

    It doesn't matter. For instance, to run windows in a virtualbox, you can point the filesystem to a file. Of course you have the option to partition your HDD or SSD and give part of it to windows but that seems like such a waste... To me anyway. ;)
